Botanically, Broccoli belongs to the cabbage family which is collectively known as cruciferous vegetables. It’s also closely related to cauliflower. Its cultivation originated in Italy. It’s Italian name Broccolo, means, “cabbage sprout.”
President George Herbert Walker Bush’s war on broccoli is still talked about. On March 22, 1990, he told members of the press (to quote the New York Times) “I don’t like broccoli.
