Spring Broccoli Raab

Certified Organic

Brassica rapa

The perfect flavorful green to steam, chop, then saute.

For the sake of advancing the popularity of this gourmet green, it was dubbed Broccoli Raab, even though it's technically a tasty turnip top. Today, many gardeners expect this cool weather plant to produce a broccoli-like head. The small florets are edible, but in Asian and Italian cuisine the whole stem with leaves is used and valued for its bright, sharp broccoli-like flavor. For a great homemade pizza topping, sauté the Raab stems with minced garlic.

This variety is suitable for growing as a microgreen. 🌱
