Broccoli, the flowering top of the cabbage, has long been valued by Italians who named it. Riverford grows four varieties of Purple Sprouting Broccoli (PSB) across Hampshire. Much tastier than calabrese (the large-headed green version), PSB can also survive our winter and is usually harvested from December to April. Blanched, roasted, stir-fried or steamed, PSB is delicious with a hot, spicy or cheesy sauce. Best of all, PSB is highly rated by health experts because it contains dozens of nutrients, fibre and protects against disease.
