Sweet baby broccoli produces smaller central heads with longer, thinner stalks than heading broccoli. Several stalks emerge from the central head once it has been harvested and the plant continues to produce dozens of side shoots of nearly equal size over an extended period. The thin stalks are 5 to 9 centimeters long topped with loose florets. Baby broccoli has a tender texture and offers a mild, sweet flavor with subtle bitter notes. Bonus: The entire plant is edible!
