The Q&A Archives: Differences Between Broccoli Raab

Question: I read an article recently which mentioned Burpee and outlined the difference between Broccoli Raab and Rapini. Looking for info/seeds on both. Can you help? Thank you. Caroline Hull Manassas, VA

Answer: According to the Royal Horticulure Society classification, Broccoli Raab (Brassica Rapa) is listed in the Ruvo Group, while Rapini (Broccoli Rapa) is listed in the Rapifera Group. I believe the leaf shapes are a bit different, but for a home gardener, the names often are used interchangeably.
