Barnapoli Rape Seeds for Sale

BARNAPOLI RAPE is a very vigorous brassica vegetable with lush tender leaves much like a very mild collard green reminiscent of broccoli leaves. It loves the winter months in Florida as do collards and other brassicas, but is an ideal spring crops for folks in snowy regions like Denver where I gardened and landscaped for 15 years. Bred for dairy farmers, it has a very mild flavor so as to not taint the cow’s milk and thus is a good choice for people who do not like tough, strong flavored greens. Use the silvery blue-green leaves raw in salads or added to stir fry, omelets, casseroles and soups. Sow the seeds from October through February in Florida and similar climates as it is a cool season brassica vegetable only that resents our humid summer heat. Northern gardeners should plant the seeds at the same time they would broccoli and other cole crops. Normally sold only to farmers in 25 or 50 lb. bags. You will receive 1 teaspoon of the seeds, (approx. 600 seeds) for $3 plus a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope sent to me at :
