Chinese broccoli

芥兰, gai lan 
Gai lan have tiny green flower buds and deep-emerald leaves that grow from a central stem. Its delicate bitterness is a great match for ginger, rice wine and a sprinkle of sugar in stir-fries. Avoid choosing gai lan with very thick and hollow stems, open flowers or yellow leaves, as these are signs of age. Fun fact: broccolini is a hybrid between broccoli and gai lan.
