Broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. variety italica) is grown throughout Georgia in both the fall and spring growing seasons. A locally significant wholesale industry has developed in southwest Georgia in recent years, and acreage devoted to broccoli production has increased. The wholesale broccoli industry fills a market window in late fall, through winter, and into early spring. Plantings also occur in north Georgia, where lower winter temperatures limit late fall plantings but allow plantings later into the spring growing season. This publication addresses considerations of horticulture, entomology, and plant pathology for production of fresh market broccoli in Georgia.
