Broccoli adds much more than vibrant colour and crunch to our plates! It’s highly nutritious too! Make the most of broccoli with these ideas.
Buy fresh Ontario broccoli from June to October when it's in season. Look for the Foodland Ontario logo or ask your store manager when shopping to know if your broccoli is locally grown.
When you buy local food, you support farmers so they can keep producing high quality, affordable food we can all enjoy.
Buy fresh broccoli when it's in season (July - October) and plain, frozen broccoli at other times.
Look for tightly closed, deep-green buds with slender, firm stems and crisp leaves. Yellow or flowering buds, wilting leaves and rubbery stems are signs that the broccoli is not fresh.
Look for broccolini, (a mix of broccoli and kale), or broccoflower, (a mix of broccoli and cauliflower).
