If you’re looking for sprouting broccoli seed for maximum sulforaphane activation, this broccoli calabrese variety is the one you need. We also stock Broccoli Raab, but this one doesn’t activate nearly as much sulforaphane.
We use these exact same broccoli sprouting seeds to grow our wholesale sprouts, sold throughout the UK in places like Abel & Cole, Planet Organic, The Organic Delivery Company, and Langridge Organic.

Broccoli sprouts are regarded as a nutritional phenomenon and are one of the most popular seed types for sprout and microgreen growers.
Broccoli sprouts are especially popular for their high levels of glucoraphanin, a compound which the body converts into sulforaphane. There has been growing evidence linking sulforaphane to a range of health benefits.
Raw vegetables produce higher levels of sulforaphane than cooked vegetables, which makes broccoli sprouts such a popular choice for maximum sulforaphane intake over vegetables such as broccoli.
Broccoli sprouts contain very high levels of vitamin C, an excellent immune booster and a source of antioxidants. They also contain high levels of vitamin A, calcium and iron.
Add them to salads, put them in sandwiches or even throw them into a smoothie. Used raw, they will add a lovely crunch to any dish. They can also be added to warm dishes such as soup or curry.

The most popular broccoli sprouting seed is calabrese (this one), mainly because it’s considered to be more nutritious. Broccoli raab is another type of sprouting seed (which we also sell).
A very common question, 99% of the time what looks like mould is actually root hairs. These fuzzy-like hairs are perfectly normal and safe, and will disappear with a rinse.
It’s normal for broccoli sprouts to have a very slight smell of sulphur on account of their glucoraphanin content. It’s also normal for them to be odourless. If they smell like anything else, especially rancid, then they have most likely rotted and should be thrown away. This might happen if allowed to soak for too long, or when using a dirty jar.
You probably need to drain more between rinses. Be sure to give your broccoli seeds a good shake to remove as much water as possible.
Keep them in a cool, dark and dry place, either sealed in the pouch or in a sealed container.
Our organic broccoli sprouts are lab-tested and verified free of e.coli and salmonella. Unlike, normal vegetable seeds, our broccoli seeds are specially grown for sprouting and microgreens, and to be free of bacteria and harmful pathogens.
