Broccoli tastes great raw or cooked! Enjoy broccoli grown in Illinois in summer and early fall months. Both the florets and stems are great to eat!

Broccoli Nutrition

Broccoli is high in fiber, making it a great choice for digestive and heart health. It is also high in vitamin C and a good source of potassium.

Choosing and Selecting Broccoli

Look for broccoli that is firm and green, without soft spots or cuts. Florets should be close together and green-blue in color.
