Broccoli rabe

Zone 8-9 | [email protected] added on November 17, 2015 | Answered

I'm having plants that are growing with big leaves but no Broccoli. I just picked because the bottom of the leaves are starting to yellow. Is this normal for the plant not to have any broccoli on the plant? And is this safe to eat? Thank you
