Crop facts

Broccoli is a member of the Brassica oleracaea¬†family, which includes many other crops including cabbage, kohlrabi, cauliflower, and kale. Broccoli (plural of broccolo in Italian) means “flowering crest of a cabbage”, which is a very accurate description of what it is! There are two distinct types of broccoli, heading broccoli (also known known as calabrese) and sprouting broccoli. It has been cultivated for over 2000 years. It was bred in the northern Mediterranean region and was highly valued in the Roman Empire. It did not reach England until the mid-eighteenth century.
