(9 customer reviews)

£6.05£74.80

Our broccoli calabrese is excellent quality seed.

According to research by Dr Jed Fahey of the Cullman Chemoprotection Institute, broccoli sprouts can be a unique source of glucoraphanin, which is converted to sulforaphane.  A delicious crunchy flavour, scatter them on top of pasta, curries, stir-fries, soups, and salads.

10g of seed will produce approximately 100g of sprouts in 4 – 5 days.

    It does take a while to awaken these wonderful seeds, but once awakened they deliver all their lifeforce gifts abundantly ! Great benefit to health when dealing with inflammation issues.

  2. Simon (Verified Buyer)

    Well packaged seeds, did not have any issues growing my first batch and now enjoying some fresh, organic sprouts.

  3. Mr G (Verified Buyer)

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

  4. brett halligan (Verified Buyer)

    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.

  5. 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!

Incredible product. I find it so hard to buy fresh so these are very accessible. I have endometriosis so it's a great way to get extra nutrients in and support my hormones!

Excellent range of really fresh seeds for sprouting. Go ahead and buy the big bags, as the seeds remain viable for more than a year. The blends are tasty and I especially like the alfalfa and fenugreek. Delivered very promptly.

The five stars are for the product. Germinated quickly after a 4-6 hour soak and ready in 3 to 4 days. Good comms with SkySprouts throughout purchase. Good website with info on potential benefits of each product. Delivery not the quickest but that was down to DPD not SkySprouts. I'd like information on the packets and serving suggestions. But that would be icing on an already excellent cake! Happy customer.

After some mixed results growing vegetables in the garden (mainly due to the efforts of slugs and snails), I thought I would try sprouting seeds indoors. I have found them to be very easy to grow, and they taste good. SkySprouts have been a great supplier: with good prices and plenty of useful information about getting started.

This was my first time ordering seeds online. The process was easy, fast and friendly. The pricing is competitive compared with buying from health shops and good value for money. I have only started sprouting two of the packets so far but the seeds look lovely, healthy and are growing well :-) Thank you. Jackie G, Biggin Hill
