The crown jewel of nutrition
Visit Ojika Island in fall or winter and you can taste the best broccoli of your life. During the harvest season, it is sold at every local supermarket, and locals eat it literally every day. Visitors often comment on how this is the sweetest broccoli they have ever tried, while relatives always look forward to receiving the delicious vegetable that kind islanders send to them every year.
When boiling broccoli locals add a bit of salt and a clove of garlic which is said to bring out the taste of the vegetable.
Ojika's broccoli gets exported around Japan as a part of Nagasaki produce.
