Broccoli is well adapted to the western San Joaquin Valley, and with careful selection of varieties, can be harvested every month except from mid-June to mid-September. The trials reported here were in response to an increased interest by freezing processors and produce handlers in broccoli production in the San Joaquin Valley.
