The green vegetable that often resembles at small tree usually gets a bad reputation. However, recent survey findings suggest many people actually enjoy the vegetable.

For the second year in a row, broccoli emerged as Americans’ favorite vegetable in a survey conducted by vegetable brand Green Giant. Five thousand people between ages 13 to 73 took part in the survey.

It’s not just the United States as a whole. Broccoli held the top spot in 39 states, including Virginia.

The 2017 Census of Agriculture found broccoli was grown on 105 Virginia farms in 2017.
