The stems of Nanohana (菜の花) (rapeseed) are eaten as a vegetable in Japan. Nanohana looks a lot like long-stemmed broccoli. It's not eaten as a vegetable at all in the UK, as far as I know, although of course the oil is widely use (canola oil). Maybe it's a different variety in Japan? Anyone know why it's not eaten in the UK? How about other countries...?

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
