Thai rapini looks much like tiny bunches of broccoli on long stems nestled among spiky large leaves. A yellow flower or two may appear. Seriously aggressive in the flavor department, this deep green vegetable delivers a ferocious pungent-bitter taste. Rapini is not to be eaten raw.
Thai rapini's peak season is from late fall through early spring but is available year-round.
Thai rapini has always been widely grown and cultivated in Italy and Asia. It now grows in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Because Americans resist bitter foods, rapini has not traveled far beyond the Chinese and Italians. Specialty Produce enthusiastically endorses and adamantly promotes our local California growers, ranchers, farmers and the California farming industry.
