Growing Seasons: Dec-Mar = Yuma, Arizona; Apr-Nov = Salinas, California. Broccoli has existed for more than 2,000 years. California grows 90% of the total production in the U.S. In 1970, we consumed an average of one-half pound of broccoli per person; today we average four and one-half pounds per year.
