New varieties on the horizon

Trials have been successful and the broccoli is now ready to be farmed, though it will likely be a number of years before the florets are widely sold. However, scientists at Cornell University haven’t just turned their attention to broccoli, they are looking to enhance the appeal and usefulness of a whole range of fruit and vegetables, whilst ensuring that their nutritional qualities are maintained if not enhanced. Other recent items they have produced include habanero peppers that lack their extreme heat, snap peas minus their strings and apples that don’t brown once they are cut.
