Brassica rapa

200 seeds/pack   |   60 days

This cool weather crop is also known as broccoli raab. The leaves and tasty flower buds are the real treat here. They have a slightly nutty flavor. Use the flower buds as you would broccoli before they bloom. The more you pick, more buds. This veggie is great steamed, stir-fried, blended in smoothies or chopped up in salads. Like most cruciferous vegetable, spring raab is high in vitamin A, C, K and potassium.
