Broccoli is only available from most parts of the country during the cooler periods of the growing season. But a scientist at Cornell University says he wants to change that.

He says his team has created a new version of broccoli that can thrive in hot summers. He says the plant is tender, crisp and a little sweet.

There is no word on when the new variety will be available.
