Rapini is botanically a kind of non-heading broccoli, and it looks much like tiny bunches of broccoli on long stems nestled among large spiky leaves. The stems are a reddish-purple color and the leaves and florets are usually green, but may occasionally have a tinge of burgundy as well. The florets eventually open to reveal small yellow flowers which have a bold peppery bite of mustard. Purple rapini has a pungent-bitter taste that becomes even stronger with maturity. It is best when cooked to bring out its hidden sweetness and mellow its peppery bite.
Purple rapini is available year-round, with peak season during summer and fall.
