🎉 Purple sprouting broccoli will blow your mind. Once you’ve tasted it grown at home, you won’t want to go back.
⚠ All your life you thought you were buying broccoli, but the supermarkets are cheating you.
The green boring broccoli that lines shelf after shelf is called a calabrese, named after Calabria in Italy. (Ok, it might be a type of broccoli, but some people say it isn’t).
👌 The taste of purple sprouting broccoli, which turns green when cooked, is sweet and delicate and melts in the mouth. It's one of the tastiest vegetables out there.
Grown initially on the wild shores of the Mediterranean Sea, broccoli has been considered a uniquely valuable food among Italians. You can find out why if you home-grow your veg.
🥦 Broccoli is easy to grow and is a pretty study vegetable. If you’ve got enough sunlight, some well-nourished soil and space to put a container you can probably find a way to grow it. The balconies and sunny spots of the UK should be filled with them!
Just one of the thing you miss out on if you don't home-grow veg. Think about starting today!
p.s. Broccoli comes from the Italian for little sprouts.
