Broccoli is considered to be a valuable food since the times of the Roman Empire. It was only introduced to England in mid of the 17th century and became popular in the Americas from the early 1900’s. Hazera focused on developing varieties with exceptional head quality and in recent years on varieties with good heat tolerance.
