At the top of the list of highly nutritional vegetables is broccoli. This green giant scores in the top ten for every single one of the vitamins and minerals included in the Californian study. Broccoli boasts more than twice as much vitamin C as an equal amount of orange. It is also a very rich source of vitamin A, both the major B vitamins, riboflavin, and the vital mineral calcium (it contains as much as whole milk). Broccoli also has plenty of iron, potassium, niacin and thiamin — quite a nutritional package.
Grow broccoli from May to September, depending on local climatic conditions.
