Broccoli Plants


Anonymous added on April 10, 2014 | Answered

I have grown my own broccoli and broccolini, letting some of them go to seed, and was just wondering how to harvest the seeds to use next year? I am presuming the seeds are in the little seed pods on the top of the plant. At what stage are they ready and what color should they be? At the moment they are a green and soft, so I am thinking that they are not ready yet.
