Broccoletii, or Broccolini is a green vegetable similar to broccoli but with smaller florets and longer, thin stalks. Often misidentified as young broccoli, it is a hybrid of broccoli and kai-lan.

The entire vegetable is consumable, including the occasional yellow flower. Common cooking methods include sautéing, steaming, boiling, and stir frying. In Japan, it is highly popular as a spring vegetable and usually eaten steamed. Its flavour is sweet, with notes of both broccoli and asparagus.

Nutritionally, it is high in vitamin C and contains vitamin A, calcium, folate, and iron.

Adaptable to most good garden soils, prefers an open sunny position.
