The plant of Anguillara small broccoli has a central stalk with large and irregular lobate and dentate leaves with a bright green color. The floral scape develops at the base of each leaf. Once it has developed, it is harvested cutting the stalk at 8-10cm from the ground. The cultivars used can be divided into two categories: early (Cinquantino, Sessantino) and late (Novantino, Centoventino, Aprilatico). The two early varieties are reproduced by using seeds with over 30 years. The taste is sweet, with a cauliflower aftertaste.
