Purple Cauliflower

Oct 13, 2016
purple cauliflower

Availability/Origin

California (year round), Northeast (fall).
 
Appearance/Flavor (The purple is real! No GMOs here.)
Outside florets are purple, while the stem and core remain cream. Texture of the stems and florets are the same as white cauliflower. However, the taste is milder and less bitter with a nutty undertone.
 
Storage
The head will last up to two weeks when loosely wrapped in plastic and stored in the fridge. The cut florets will last up to one week when sealed in a plastic bag and stored in the fridge.
 
Ways to enjoy
Raw, roasted, steamed, soups.
 
History
The wild grown origin is unknown, most likely a heritage variety from either South Africa or Italy. (Can we be anymore vague?) :)
