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.
