Broccolini is a cross between broccoli and kai-lan, Chinese broccoli. It was developed by the Sakata Seed Company of Yokohama, Japan, with the name Chinese kale or gai lan. Mann Packing Company introduced broccolini to the US market in 1998. They grow it year round in California and Arizona. Today broccolini is enjoyed throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
