Chinese Broccoli is a dark-green leafy vegetable growing to about 20cm tall. The outer leaves are thick and flat and resemble Kale. The stems are short and thick, similar to regular Broccoli.
While all parts of the plant are edible, Chinese Broccoli is cultivated for its flower stems and the attached younger leaves. The white flower buds should be developed but not open.
The flavor is very similar to a regular broccoli, with a slight bitterness.
