It has been for sale in California and Texas for the last year, has recently been sold in Britain and should be sold throughout the US sometime this fall.
Of course, there are those who question the need for such a thing--you can read some of the pros and cons of it in the article--but I suppose there could be worse things than healthier broccoli.
What they need to come up with now is something like cheese that lowers your blood pressure. That, I'd pay for!
