Broccoli is an indispensably important vegetable with a history. The plant originated in Europe, possibly in Italy. There it evolved from a wild cabbage through selective breeding by the Romans. It has been consumed there in several forms for at least 2000 years.

Roman colonization allowed Broccoli to spread throughout the continent and into the Middle East and Asia. Italian Immigrants first imported it into the USA and the Southern Hemisphere, especially Australia, New Zealand and South Africa in the 1920’s.

Today Broccoli is an important commercial crop grown in great numbers in: China, India, U.S.A. Spain, Italy, France, Mexico, Poland, Pakistan and the United Kingdom plus to a lesser degree in most other countries with temperate climates. In cooler and moderate climates Broccoli can be grown all year but it is primarily grown and understood to be a ‘cool season’ vegetable, often grown from Autumn through Spring.
