Q.

Broccoli harvest length of time

Zone Central Florida | maesaysdoit added on April 20, 2015 | Answered

How long after those first sprigs can I keep harvesting? Is there a time that I just pull the plant and start a new one? My broccoli doesn't seem to get much more than a stem of broccoli here and there. I live in Florida so it is hot here.

Brocoli is a considered a cool weather crop so in your warm weather this may be a challenge for you. You can certainly cut your broccoli as it forms and your plants may send out more side shoots.
Here is a few articles with excellent growing details.
