I bought a little plant at the nursery and planted it at home. Easy plant with beautiful purple head.

This is probably the easiest cauliflower I've ever grown. The heads are huge and are a beautiful violet color. This one needs more space than other varieties.

Much easier to grow than your average cauliflower--no blanching required. Big, beautiful purple heads form early and have excellent flavor.

This is a purple head cauliflower. Heads are deep purple and stay purple when cooked. It is a midseason cultivar, but handles heat well. Easy to grow.
