Eat it now: Purple sprouting broccoli ...

The Guardian

By Nikki Duffy

Purple sprouting broccoli is an utterly delicious, seasonal British crop. Harvested in areas where frost can be warded off (such as the Isle of Grain, in Kent), its traditional season is February and March, though growers have stretched this, so these days it begins before Christmas. Any greengrocer, farm shop or supermarket worth its salt will have it in stock now.
