Early Fall Rapini, an Italian specialty used in salads and light cooking, produce strong yields of broccoli raab. It has a tangy, mustard-like taste. The tender turnip-like leafy flower shoots of this early bolting variety are harvested and bunched just as the first flowers open. In the Southern United States, it adapted well to early fall planting and winter harvest. Plants reach a height of 18 to 24 inches.
