Organic Broccolini Bunch Each


Baby Broccoli Bunches, more tender and lighter in flavour.

It is a green vegetable similar to broccoli but with smaller florets and longer, thin stalks. Although often misidentified as young broccoli, it is a cross between broccoli and kai-lan, Chinese broccoli. A natural hybrid of the cabbage family Brassica oleracea italica x alboglabra, it was developed by the Sakata Seed Company of Yokohama, Japan, with the name Chinese kale or gai lan. Broccolini's flavor is sweet, with notes of both broccoli and asparagus.

It is also known by the names asparation®, asparations, bimi, broccoletti, broccolette[1] and tender stem.

The entire vegetable is consumable, including the occasional yellow flower. Rather delicate, common cooking methods include sauteing, steaming, boiling, and stir frying.

Nutritionally, broccolini is high in vitamin C but also contains vitamin A, calcium, folate, and iron.[3]

Half a cup of cooked broccolini provides one serve of vegetables.
