Broccoli Florets

Broccoli is an edible green plant in the cabbage family whose large flowerhead is eaten as a vegetable. The word broccoli comes from the Italian plural of broccolo, which means “the flowering crest of a cabbage”, and is the diminutive form of brocco, meaning “small nail” or “sprout”. Broccoli is high in vitamin C and dietary fibre and contains multiple nutrients and has the highest levels of carotenoids in the cabbage family. It is particularly rich in lutein and also provides a modest amount of beta-carotene.
