Broccoli is a sun-loving, cool-season crop that is best grown in the spring or fall. Its also incredibly healthy and has been dubbed the crown jewel of nutrition.
Broccoli is worth growing for its nutritional content alone. This cold crop is rich in vitamins and minerals, and is a good source of Vitamin A, potassium, folic acid, iron, and fiber.
Once you harvest the main head of a broccoli plant, it will often keep producing smaller side shoots that can be enjoyed for months to come.
