Growing Broccoli is easy. It's a member of the same family of plants as Cabbage, Cauliflower and Brussel Sprouts (Brassica family). It's a cool-season vegetable that prefers its temperatures on the cool side. Broccoli has shown in many studies that it and other members of the Brassica family produce a cancer-fighting substance called sulforaphane.
