The broccoli plant is a dark-green vegetable with a firm stalk and branching arms that end in florets. The name comes from the Latin word brachium, meaning “arm” or “branch,” or the Italian word broccolo, for “cabbage sprout.” The edible portions are the florets and 6 to 8 inches of the supporting stem. Broccoli is closely related to cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts.
