Broccoli Raab contains a host of beneficial nutrients and antioxidants. One cup of sprouts contains double the amount of fibre as regular broccoli and 60% of your daily intake of immune-boosting Vitamin C. Broccoli sprouts contain approximately 50 times the amount of nutrients as the vegetable.
All of the brassica family contain beneficial glucosinolates, sulfur-containing plant compounds that have many beneficial qualities for health, and are generally very rich sources of antioxidants and carotenoids.
Broccoli has a mild flavor with a hint of pepperiness, and a slight crunch, similar to Alfalfa.
Please note if you are specifically trying to grow sprouts for sulforaphane, this is not the right seed for you. Despite its many beneficial properties, broccoli raab has not been shown to contain high levels of the specific plant compound glucoraphanin, which is synthesized into sulforaphane, so you will not increase your sulforaphane consumption by consuming these sprouts, you need our Broccoli Calabrese seed or our Freeze-Dried sprouts.
10g of seed will produce approximately 100g of sprouts in 4 – 5 days.

Have a question?
I’ve been growing this in my sprout trays but it just goes mouldy every time. I don’t have this problem with the alfalfa or mung so where am I going wrong?!
Broccoli is a slightly trickier sprout to grow, it is fussier than other types of seed. It’s hard to say why it would be going mouldy as exact conditions vary so much from person to person.
I would advise being really careful not to let the broccoli sit in water. When you rinse it through, make sure it is drained very well. That can be one of the biggest issues with it going mouldy. It may be that the trays you are using allow water to sit in them, and the broccoli seed won’t like this. You may have better luck using a jar for broccoli, as it can be left to drain on the draining board for an hour or so. If they are germinating slowly, you can always put them somewhere a bit warmer to speed them up – they will grow faster or slower depending on how warm or cold they are, and how warm or cold the water used to rinse them is. You can always rinse more often, to ensure mould isn’t able to grow, but keep draining really well in between. You can also try varying the water temperature, if your house is quite warm, make sure to rinse with cold water to keep them cool as they generate a lot of heat as they grow.
Rest assured we use the same see to grow our own broccoli sprouts, so they can be sprouted successfully without mould. It may just take some time to work out exactly what conditions work best for the broccoli in your house.
Please do let us know how you get on and if you are still having problems, please get in touch.
Thank you, I think I’ll try with a jar and see how they get on with that.
