Brassica oleracea Broccoli 'Red Arrow' was developed by Dr. Gray of Wellesbourne. A vast improvement on exisiting strains, cropping 1 week earlier and yielding up to 20% more. 'Red Arrow' produces vigorous, vitamin-rich plants with lots of tender flower buds. An extremely useful and easy-to-grow, hardy winter vegetable, providing lots of tasty purple heads (which turn green when cooked) during late February/March.

This variety has an RHS Award of Garden Merit.
