PLANT - BROCCOLI: YOD FAH
The delectable, tender stalks taste like a cross between asparagus and broccoli, only sweeter. Our favorite spring vegetable, this is a very easy-to-grow broccoli-like plant from China. Nothing goes to waste with this crop; all parts of the plant are delicious. The tender blue-green, glossy leaves are similar to kale but better, and the broccoli-like inflorescence are buttery soft and nutty in flavor. Not only is this vegetable a taste test winner, but also nutritional superfood.
Companion plants: Bok choy, Pak choy, Napa cabbage, Broccoli, Kohlrabi, Rutabaga, Cabbage, Carrot, Beet, Beans, Cucumber, Peas, Strawberries, Marjoram, and Mustard.
PRO TIP: Leaves are ready to harvest in about 60 to 70 days. Harvest young stems and leaves when the first flowers appear. To encourage a continuous supply of leaves, pick or cut the stalks using a clean sharp knife, about 8 inches from the top of the plants. GREAT for containers!
