Broccoli: Broccoli is a “man-made” food.

So human’s just engineered broccoli out of nowhere? Nope.Well, not exactly.Broccoli only came about after years and years of selective breeding between wild cabbage plants that started around the 6th century BC.In fact, the word “broccoli” comes from the Italian for “the flowering crest of a cabbage”.

Broccoli was grown mainly in Italy since the Roman Empire until the 16th century when a royal marriage brought the vegetable to France.
