Imperial produces fancy quality in warm weather. In fact, it needs warm weather to make good, dense heads. Good for spring, summer and early fall crops (and in winter in the South). If you think your conditions are too warm to grow broccoli, give Imperial a try. Best for crown cut. Imperial maturity may be affected by heat/day-length.
