broccoli

Helps prevent cancer, protects heart and circulatory system, builds strong bones, high vitamin A and C, calcium. What we normally call “broccoli”, is actually the top portion with unopened flower buds. If we let them grow, they open into small yellow flowers that have a mild spicy broccoli flavor and are delicious in salads. One way to identify a plant from the mustard family (all of which are edible) is the flowers have 4 petals with 6 stamens–4 tall and 2 short.
