DESCRIPTION:

2023 is the Year of Broccoli.

Broccoli, a member of the cabbage family, has a rich history dating back over 2,000 years. Its ancestry traces back to the Mediterranean region and the Middle East, and it is believed to originate from the wild cabbage found mainly in coastal areas.

Ancient Romans adored broccoli as a staple of their diet.

During the Middle Ages, broccoli spread throughout Europe, particularly in France and England. Its cultivation was encouraged by the nobility and clergy. Over time, different varieties of broccoli were developed, including the familiar green broccoli, purple broccoli, and sprouting broccoli.

The different types resulted from selective breeding and adaptation to different climates and soil types.

Broccoli came to the Americas with European immigrants, though it only became widely enjoyed in the early 20th century when Italian immigrants and their restaurants grew in popularity.

Commercial cultivation of broccoli in the US began in the 1920s in California.

Today, significant producers include China, India, the United States, and several European countries. The vegetable is recognized for its nutritional benefits, considering it is rich in vitamins C and K, dietary fiber, and antioxidants. Broccoli's culinary use has also evolved, with various cuisines incorporating it in salads, soups, casseroles, and stir-fries. Its popularity is a testament to its versatility and nutritional value, cementing its place as a staple in various diets around the globe.
