"Brave star-pilots hauled seeds all the way from Broest just so farmers could produce something to help children grow up strong."
―Bail Organa persuades his adopted daughter Leia to eat ruica[src]

Broest was a location from which ruica seeds were transported across the galaxy to the planet Alderaan for farmers to grow. When, during her childhood, Princess Leia Organa would not eat ruica, her[1] adoptive[2] father Bail Organa told her about the seeds being brought to Alderaan from Broest in order to convince her.[1]
