A real delicacy, broccoli has a milder flavor, more creamy and nutty than standard broccoli.
First recorded in Italy in the 16th century. Sometimes referred to as Broccoflower, Roman Cauliflower or Coral Broccoli. A real delicacy, Romanesco has a milder flavor, more creamy and nutty than standard broccoli and cauliflower. The raw texture is exceptional, but it is also nice for steaming, stir-frying or roasting. Very rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, fiber and carotenoids. Grows exceptionally well in cool areas, but also does well as a summer planted crop to harvest in early to late fall.
