Did you know – Baby broccoli is often misidentified as young broccoli, when in fact it’s a hybrid of broccoli and gai-lan (Chinese broccoli). Baby broccoli is naturally sweeter than broccoli, with slender, delicate stalks topped by a small floret that is not as compact or tight as the common varieties of broccoli.
