Yes I know Packman is in ALL of the Jungs family of catalogs. But I also know I used to get 1,000 seeds for what they are now charging for these. And I'm also sure they are old leftover seeds. I've talked with the seed reps and Packman was discontinued 3 years ago.

Thanks for the heads up on Packman. I'm trying Gypsy this year along with a few older Emerald Crown seeds.

It looks like my broccoli season is about over and it was a bad one from start to finish this year. Half my fall broccoli got frozen or consumed by squirrels and my late winter or early spring broccoli that wasn't eaten by squirrels headed up way too early. I have already cut most of the main heads with the largest being only slightly over 3 inches across. Usually my spring broccoli makes heads 6 to 7 inches across. This was an unusual winter with extreme cold and then extreme heat in February. I'm still not sure we won't have another hard freeze before it is over.
