Broccoli - Romanesco - Brassica oleracea (Botrytis Group)
Annual Heirloom. The broccoli and cauliflower families both lay claim to this dramatic vegetable. Discovered in 16th century Italy, it sends up small spirals that curve to form a large spiral head. Break it apart and eat it raw or steamed. Prized for its delicate, nutty flavor as well as its vivid, light green color. May reach 3' before producing.
