About the product
Broccolette is much like Broccolini. (Actually, it's exactly the same.) Often misidentified as young broccoli, it is a hybrid of broccoli and kai-lan (Chinese broccoli or Chinese kale), both cultivar groups of Brassica oleracea. It was originally developed by the Sakata Seed Company of Yokohama, Japan, in 1993 as "aspabroc". Broccolette is high in vitamin C but also contains vitamin A, calcium, folate and iron. The entire vegetable is edible, including the occasional yellow flower. Its flavour is sweet, with notes of both broccoli and asparagus, although it is not closely related to the latter. Broccolette is used in stir-fring and for sautéing, steaming or boiling - this tender vegetable can be eaten raw or cooked and can replace broccoli florettes in most recipes.

About the vendor
Coke Farms Coke Farms
San Juan Bautista, CA
Coke Farm is a family-run operation started by Dale and his sister Madelene. Christine Coke joined the farm after she married Dale. Dale began the farm in 1981, with 1/4 acre of strawberries. Initially, he did all the work himself, delivering locally to restaurants and local markets, and growing more vegetables as the market expanded. In fact, Dale's foray into organic gardening was at a fortuitous time, coinciding with the explosion of California cuisine and its demand for esoteric, high-quality and organic vegetables.

Over the years, Coke Farm has grown to its current size of 400 acres on various ranches spread around the San Juan Bautista area. Each site has its own microclimate, soil conditions, and water type, creating different challenges in each area. As it has grown, the farm has changed its focus, moving more to mainstream varieties, but the farm still keeps a few more 'interesting' crops, like pomegranate, cassis, and red currants. Coke Farm's main crops now are strawberries, lettuces (10 varieties), broccoli, celery, and cauliflower, plus what's in season now: beets, celeriac, parsnips, leeks, spring mix, and braising mix.

Coke Farm is proud to be continuing its tradition by growing three main varieties of strawberries. Christine's favorite is Chandler, a dark, round, medium-sized berry with an intense fragrance and a very sweet flavor. Coke Farm also grows Seascape and Aroma strawberries and trials other varieties.
