What’s the Difference between Broccoli, Broccolini and Broccoli Rabe?

Broccoli is a member of the cabbage family. While most often used for its large florets, the entire plant is edible.

Broccolini is a hybrid vegetable that is a cross between broccoli and Chinese broccoli. It has smaller florets, edible leaves and is more mild-tasting than broccoli.

Broccoli rabe is actually not related to broccoli at all and is in the turnip family. It has thin stalks with dark green leaves and a much more bitter, earthy flavor than broccoli.
