Calabrese是一个常用的英文姓氏。在中国,西兰花被译作broccoli。但实际上我研究下来,实际上中国人常吃的西兰花并不是broccoli,而是calabrese。什么原因,下面有兴趣的看看为什么。

What is The Difference Between Calabrese and Broccoli?

A lot of people are confused as to what a calabrese really is and what a broccoli really is. Are they the same? If not, what’s the difference between the two? What clearly defines one from the other?

The truth is, calabrese and broccoli are two different varieties of the same vegetable. And since they are of different varieties, they also have differences which will distinctly tell which is which.

One characteristic that defines a calabrese from a broccoli is the season when they are planted and harvested. Calabrese typically matures much faster than broccoli. They are planted early in the year and harvested on the same year which is usually in the summer.

Broccoli on the other hand matures more slowly. Broccoli that has been planted this year should mature the following year.

Calabrese also looks different from broccoli physically. Where a calabrese produces green heads, broccoli produces white or purple heads. The head of a calabrese is also larger compared to that of broccoli.

There is also a distinct difference in the taste between the two. Calabrese has a mild flavor with a texture that’s tender similar to that of asparagus.

Broccoli has a slightly bitter taste that’s tougher than calabrese.

Currently, modern breeding allows gardeners to harvest broccoli almost all throughout the year. This makes the difference between calabrese and broccoli blurred and hard to recognize. Even supermarkets tag both by either name and sell both types under both names.

其实大头绿色的是calabrese,分头紫色或白色的是broccoli。
