At the onset, it is quite different to receive organic broccoli from that which you see in groceries where the head is the most prominent. Conventionally grown broccoli features very large heads due to the growth promotants incorporated into the farming process. Generally the crown has been sold in supermarkets because they can grow it that big and is aesthetically easier to sell. But the stalks themselves are actually very nutritious.
Broccoli stems have a wonderful mild sweet flavor and are much higher in fiber than the florets; they are renown for the amount of extra fiber they can add to your diet. The stem also contains compounds that can protect individuals from certain types of cancer and improve immunity. We partner with 4 to 6 organic farms and across the board those of them who grow broccoli always send in longer stalks from those conventionally sold.
