Aspabroc is a hybrid of broccoli and gai lan that is commonly known as Broccolini in restaurants and grocery stores. The nutrient dense, tender stems taste of sweet broccoli with a hint of asparagus. Aspabroc is easy to grow and requires very little space. Harvest central shoots as soon as they mature in order to encourage side shoot growth.
