About Broccoli

Broccoli is a cool-season crop, closely related to cabbage, cauliflower, kale, and mustard. It can be grown as either a spring or a fall crop. Broccoli is a high-quality vegetable for fresh use and is one of the more popular frozen vegetables. Broccoli is highly nutritious and has been deemed an anti-cancerous food by the American Cancer Society. This vegetable is a good source of Vitamin A, calcium, and riboflavin (or vitamin B2). The edible portion of the broccoli plant consists of the tender stem and the unopened flower buds. Sprouting broccoli should not be confused with broccoli-raab (or Italian turnip), which is grown for early leafy greens and with much smaller flower shoots.
