Broccoli rabe, a vegetable native to the D’Arrigo’s hometown of Messina, Sicily was first grown by the D’Arrigo family in San Jose, CA in the 1960’s. Wanting to ensure consistent flavor and supply the family brought on staff including their own seed breeder. For the past 60 years, D’Arrigo California has produced quality bunches of Andy Boy broccoli rabe that is offered both conventionally and organically. The proprietary cruciferous ‘super-green’ vegetable whose bold flavor comes from being a member of the mustard family is offered exclusively by D’Arrigo California year-round.
