wiki DEF: "Broccolini is a green vegetable similar to broccoli but with smaller florets and longer, thin stalks. Although often misidentified as young broccoli, it is a cross between broccoli and kai-lan, Chinese broccoli. Broccolini's flavor is sweet, with notes of both broccoli and asparagus." - 6/12/11
