Compositional differences of stem and floral portions of broccoli heads



Compositional differences of stem and floral portions of broccoli heads



Journal of Vegetable Crop Production 10(2): 107-118



Edible portions of broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. italica) consist of immature fully differentiated flower buds and tender portions of the upper stem. Differences in the developmental stage of the above tissues may be reflected in a different composition that may also be a result of environmental conditions.
