Does anyone know where to buy "Broccolini" here? I had it for the first time at the Citrus Club in Orlando along with a fabulous filet mignon. I have been dying to have it again but I am having a little trouble finding it here in Ocala. For those who may not know what Broccolini is: here is how Wikipedia explains it :)

"Broccolini is a green vegetable similar to broccoli but with smaller florets and longer, thin stalks. Although often misidentified as young broccoli, it is a hybrid of broccoli and kai-lan, Chinese broccoli, both cultivar groups of Brassica oleracea. The cultivar was developed by the Sakata Seed Company of Yokohama, Japan, in 1993 with the name "aspabroc". The name "Broccolini" is a registered trademark of Mann Packing Company, Inc."

What Wikipedia doesn't tell you is how fantastic is tastes ! I mean it was paired with a filet (pretty much the 'celebrity" of beef) and I couldn't decide which I liked better ...pretty high ranking for just a veggie. It is high in calcium, folate, vitamins A &C and of course iron. If you know where to find it here please let me know, my taste buds will be forever grateful.

I purchase it in publix (heath brook plaza) . it is in the section with the leaf lettuces and whole beets, bok choy is.  I believe it is a season vegetable and not available all year however i did purchase it within the past month.

Mark's Prime downtown serves this if you are still looking. I haven't seen it in stores.
