Botanical Name: Brassica oleracea

Synonyms: Minestra Nera, Leaf Broccoli

A Southern Italian heirloom broccoli variety grown for its leaves. The flavor is something between broccoli and kale but with a tender crunchiness. It is a great cut-and-come-again vegetable as it produces over a long season. Removing the small flowering heads will extend the season. Use it steamed, in stir-fries and salads. It is easy to grow and will tolerate warmer conditions without bolting much better than regular broccoli.
