About Tenderstem®

What adventures are made of

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!
