BROCCOLI - PURPLE SPROUTING

This variety is a Calabrese type which produces a mutitude of medium sized heads with a lovely purple colour which will diminish with cooking.

It looks wonderful in a stir fry where it is just blanched and so still retains its colour. Purple Broccoli has been known in Europe since Roman times but has only become widely popular in the last 15-20 years
