why is my broccoli so bitter?
Hello. I can never seem to get broccoli that isn't terribly bitter. Could I be picking it too early? but when I wait it goes to flower (I guess I wait too long). I love to eat raw broccoli and from the garden that always seems to be a bitter nightmare. Is there a sweetier variety I could grow? I hate the fact that I enjoy broccoli bought at the grocery better than what I have in the garden!! I really want to fix this problem or I will have to give up on growing broccoli all together. I have started some for the fall harvest, could our hot weather be to blame for this bitterness and the fall crop will have a better taste? Thanks for any tips you may have. Sarah
