Scientists hope to bring broccoli growth east

When two italian brothers popularized broccoli in America during the 1920s, they centered their production in California's chilly Salinas Valley. It's largely stayed there because hot weather,like New York's hot and humid summers, stymies the plant's growth. But as WRVO's Adam Wolfe reports, a group of scientists plan on bringing broccoli east.
