> I've read that broccoli is a test for supertasters.  Some people find raw broccoli to be sweet and mild. 
>  Average people find raw broccoli somewhat bitter, but don't detect any bitterness in cooked broccoli.  
> Supertasters find any form of broccoli bitter.

I find  that broccoli from different plants, depending on  ripeness/overripeness, can taste sweet or bitter, tasted in succession.  It is a function of the variety and maturity of the broccoli, not my tastebuds.  How does this differ from what a "supertaster" might discerne?
