Highly nutritious European vegetable broccoli is becoming popular in Dhaka city. The deep green plant of the cabbage family, resembling common cauliflower, was once available only in posh superstores. However, it has slowly made its way to be sold by street vendors. Farmers are more and more opting for its cultivation as the profit is higher than cauliflower. A large quantity of broccoli is now supplied to city markets from Savar.
