Tenderstem® broccoli is a sweet, crunchy and vibrant vegetable, it’s incredibly versatile and super convenient as the whole stem is edible and requires no trimming.
Packed full of nutrients, it’s high in vitamin A and C and is a great source of potassium and Iron, providing four times more vitamin A than traditional broccoli.
Barfoots were the first to grow Tenderstem in the UK, within the warmer climate of the South Coast.
We continue to grow in the UK and Spain, ensuring a consistent, reliable, high quality supply. West Sussex is one of the best locations in the UK for growing Tenderstem®, due to the mild climate which helps to lengthen the growing season from end May to mid-November. Outside of this season, over 1000 acres are grown in the Lorca Valley in Spain.
We also work with growers in Kenya to supplement our supply when required throughout the year.
