Originating in the Mediterranean, our Italian Raab or Rapini is one of the most popular vegetables among many in Europe and in Asia, it is probably the most popular vegetable in Hong Kong and is used extensively in Italian cooking. Flourishing famously in Mediterranean and Chinese cultures, elsewhere it is still a bit of a curiosity.
Unlike normal broccoli, which is from the cabbage family, Broccoli raab is related to turnip. It grows the same as sprouting broccoli but with leaves that look like turnip greens. The taste is somewhere between broccoli and spinach, but with undercurrents of mustard greens and a delightful, slightly bitter edge softened by just a hint of nutty sweetness. our Broccoli sprouting seeds are a tangy, fresh 4-day sprout that grows well in a jar or sprouting tray.
