Artwork Stir-Fry Broccoli

  • Light: Full sun

  • Plant size: 24 to 30 inches tall

A 2015 All-America Selections winner. Grow your own baby (or stem) broccoli — a gourmet treat! Instead of focusing its energy on producing one large broccoli head, Artwork Broccoli yields tender, dark green side shoots with bite-size heads and long, edible stems–perfect for stir-fries and sautéing. Pinch the main head when it reach 1 to 1.5 inches to trigger side shoot formation. Harvest the smaller heads that follow when stems are 6 to 7 inches long. Plants should yield many side shoots through the growing season—a true broccoli bouquet. Resists bolting in warm weather.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available in your local area, due to different variables in certain regions. Also, if any variety is a limited, regional variety it will be noted on the pertinent variety page.

Artwork Stir-Fry Broccoli is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Help! First year grower and I need HELP. They’re shooting up so tall and skinny and FLOwERing on the sides the head has not reached any considerable size but the stem itself is thinner than a pencil and about 18 inches tall. Do I pinch yet?! The shorter fuller one is what the others looked like before the growth spurt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many shoots and Great Flavor! Around bloom time each week I'm cutting off new shoots! I use them for multiple uses and when you boil them not only the kitchen will smell good but you taste buds will thank you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A good fall crop in Southern NM Bought plants and planted them Sept. 12. They are now over a foot heads yet, but they have been taking off as the weather has cooled a bit...I just removed the 50% shade cloth today. Tons of flea beetles, picked off some cabbage loopers, but hopefully as the weather cools, this problem will disappear. I am in the high desert and it can get bitterly cold...I use 2mm plastic over hoops and grow all fact, winter is my best growing season for this plant, chard, kale, cabbage, endive and dandelion! Can't rate yield yet, I've pinched regular broccoli and always have had more yield...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! I have planted this 2 years in a row (in Wisconsin) and it has done exceptional. I plant in mid May and have some to harvest by mid June. It keeps producing. Every week I go out and snip off about a gallon size bag full! I will continue to grow this!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this broccoli! This was one of the best ideas planting these! We love them steamed so much better than the larger broccoli heads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Growing great in Knoxville TN It just keeps making. I'm freezing it. I steam for 3 minutes then cool in ice water. I then drain well and freeze on a rack so when I bag it for the freezer it's easy to take out as little as you need without it being one frozen lump.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth growing in warm areas I tried this last fall, and I'm sorry I did. It was largely a waste of garden space. The plants are puny, and the side shoots, which are supposed to be what this is known for, were just as puny. They weren't thick like the ones in the picture. They were very thin and kind of tough. We had a very warm winter, which may have been a factor. From now on I'm sticking with regular broccoli.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grows well in North Texas This has been growing well with the ups and downs of temp in North Texas. I have been able to harvest a few heads and they were great. Will be planting this again!
