Twice as good
You’ll never guess where Tenderstem® is from! Go on try! No? Well, we’ll tell you then. A long time ago in Japan, someone had the bright idea to bring together two of their favourite vegetables to make a new one that was full of flavour and packed with goodness. Using classical plant-breeding techniques, they crossed broccoli with Chinese kale and hey presto! Tenderstem® was born. How about that!
Chinese kale is a traditional brassica, and very popular in China where the delicate stems are eaten.
Broccoli used to be called calabrese, taking its name from the Calabria region of Italy, where it has been eaten since Roman times. Now that is a long time ago!
All the best qualities of broccoli and Chinese kale come together in Tenderstem® to make a sweet and tender stem brassica with good texture.
