Broccoleaf is fully packed with antioxidants aka super greens, good for detoxification. This mighty green scores higher than kale (and broccoli florets) in calcium, but it is also an excellent source of great vitamins (see below), and has lots of phytonutrients, like glucosinolates, which are great cancer fighters.
When to plant and grow broccoli?
Broccoli can be planted in patios and/or in greenhouses around mid to late summer. Will reach full growth late Autunm (fall) or early winter time. All depending on your country/location and of course climate conditions.
During mild weather conditions you are more likely to harvest it at early winter.
You can actually transplant the broccoli plant to the garden when they reach 7-10 cm or when they are 5 to 6 weeks old. Also great idea to move them outside as early as the very last spring frosty is over.

We typically only eat the fruit of the broccoli plant, but Foxy Farms has discovered that the broccoli leaves are just as edible. The leaves are an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin K, calcium, folate, and provides a 100% daily dose of vitamin C. Broccoleaf is perfect to add to any healthy recipes.
It is also sweet and crisp without the bitter taste.
BroccoLeaf can be added to…
- Stirred in with your scrambled eggs
- Tossed in any homemade salad
- Used as a wrap
- Sautee it like spinach
- Juice it
- Add it to a stir-fry
BroccoLeaf might just be the new kale on the market.
If you have broccoli growing in your backyard, give the leaves a try! For more information visit the Foxy Farms website.
Whatever the way you eat it just enjoy the benefits of it!
