Organic Broccoli Calabrese Seed

(3 customer reviews)

£5.50£68.00

Broccoli Calabrese seed is an excellent quality seed. If you are looking to increase your sulforaphane consumption, this is the seed to buy. A growing body of evidence has linked sulforaphane to decreased inflammation markers, increased antioxidant levels, and the treatment of various different types of cancers, along with numerous other health benefits.

Broccoli sprouts contain a host of beneficial nutrients and antioxidants. Packed with fibre and immune system boosting vitamin C broccoli sprouts contain approximately 50 times the amount of nutrients than the vegetable.

10g of seed will produce approximately 100g of sprouts in 4 – 5 days. For maximum sulforaphane harvest sprouts at 3 days old.

    Just had my second delivery! Good quality seeds and prompt service from skysprouts. I will definitely continue to order from them. Very happy 🙂

    Great product, been buying seeds from sky sprouts for about 5 years and the quality is always great, I would not hesitate to recomend sprouting and sky sprouts to anyone who asked.

  3. Dragan (Verified Buyer)

    Broccoli seeds are, for me, the most difficult ones to sprout. These appear sleepy first 2 or three days, but then they come to life! They are ready to eat by the 7th eight day. Really good quality and lets not forget the enormous health benefits that broccoli calebrese have. Money well spent. I get about 7 times more edible weight then the dry seeds have.

Hi Catherine,

These seeds need to be soaked for 8 – 12 hours. I’ll send you an email now with our growing instructions, hopefully that will help 🙂

I bought your fresh broccoli sprouts from Abel & Cole. 1) Are these the same seeds you use for your fresh Broccoli sprouts?
2) Will they all usually sprout or only certain percentage like some reported in other companies’ seeds reviews (which some reported only 50%)?
3) You only offer to buy 100g and 1kg. Do you not offer other quantities? Thought 100g is too little amount and 1kg may be too large amount.
4) Glen Matten had asked about the glucoraphanin level 4 months ago. Wonder do you have certification for your broccoli seeds yet?
Thanks

Hi I live a couple of miles away from you, could I pick them up in person?

Hi Hugo, I’m afraid we don’t have people constantly on-site or any facilities to do direct sales on our farm. Sorry about that.

Hi, have you had your broccoli calabrese seeds tested for their glucoraphanin content (e.g. the precursor to sulforaphane) to establish if they are a high glucoraphanin variety?

Thanks for getting in touch, and great question.

We haven’t had our Calabrese seed tested for glucoraphanin levels. With all the great research being done lately which has highlighted the tremendous benefits of sulforaphane, interest in this particular aspect of broccoli sprouts has soared. Prior to this, people generally wanted broccoli seed for the numerous health benefits, rather than specifically for sulforaphane. So this is something we have just begun to consider as something our customers may be interested in.

We are currently exploring options with a laboratory to test for glucoraphanin in our freeze-dried sprouts. If we manage to do this, we could extend this to our seed as well. It isn’t a standard test that they offer, as it is a very specialised area, so we are currently trying to figure out if they can do it for us. We are also in talks with our seed supplier to see if they can do this testing on the seed. We will make sure to update you when we have made some progress on this.

Thank you for your helpful response. I work in the field of nutritional medicine and I prefer to embrace a ‘food first’ philosophy rather than supplements whenever possible and practical. I am aware that glucoraphanin (and thus sulforphane levels) can vary considerably across different cultivars of broccoli seeds hence it would be great to know that I was recommending a bona fide high glucoraphanin broccoli seed.
PS – I have recommended your broccoli seeds to a lot of my clients and use them myself!

I first tasted sprouts from SkySprouts a few months ago and loved it! The sprouts were so delicious that I decided to start sprouting my own using a ceramic glass sprouter jar & seeds from SkySprouts. They sprout perfectly every time and I continue to enjoy making my own sprouts. Thank you!

I'll be using SkySprouts again! My order was delivered speedily, and was well packaged. The prices of the seeds were good and I'm delighted to say that I'm eating sprouted seeds already, having started a batch as soon as I received my order! Excellent quality seed which started sprouting right on time! YUMMY! Thank you SkySprouts.

I am really impressed with this company as they process orders quickly and have a great range of organic products. This time, I purchased kale seeds which sprouted quickly and were really delicious. I also bought the freeze dried broccoli sprouts which are convenient for those days when I have forgotten (or can't) add seeds to my bio-Snacky germinator!
