China produces more than half of the world's total volume of broccoli and cauliflower. The most widely grown broccoli varieties in China are Excellent, Future, and Divine Green. 90% of the production is consumed fresh, while the remaining 10% is processed. There are few cauliflowers and broccoli available in the US state of Tennessee. This has been the case for a long time. During the last four to six weeks, the supply has decreased due to the impact of rainfall and inclement weather. Compared to the same period last year, the volume was reduced by 75%. If it continues to rain, the cultivation of production will become more difficult and prices will also change. Three weeks ago, prices for cauliflower and broccoli were very high, reaching unusual levels. There was very little supply in the market due to the heavy rains this year, which caused losses, diseases and crop problems. The situation has been improving for several weeks, especially for broccoli. The supply is sufficient and the demand is not so high, so prices have dropped significantly. At the end of Easter, the demand for cauliflower was good and prices increased, especially in the Naples and Metaponto areas. Prices in Latina and Salerno have remained stable. By week 15, the harvest had already finished in the different production areas.

Broccoli is an important crop in Spain. So far it has been a very good season. According to one exporter, the prices were extremely high. Spain exports broccoli to northern European nations for about a month. Currently, the cauliflower market is developing slowly. The supply of cauliflower is not that great, but the demand is not that great either. Prices vary between 5 and 7 euros. Most of the supply comes from France and Spain, supplemented by a limited volume of Dutch winter cauliflower. The French season is coming to an end. For a long time, good prices were paid for French cauliflower due to the low volumes available, but this was followed by a large supply, causing a sea change.

In Malaysia, broccoli is obtained from Australia, which is of excellent quality. Broccoli is an important vegetable for Malaysian dishes and therefore, demand is increasing. There is also a lot of interest in organic broccoli.
