Cauliflower, Violetta 4"

This fine old Italian brassica is another that kind of blurs the line between broccoli and cauliflower. Heads are quite large by broccoli standards, smallish for a cauliflower. Color is lovely light purple for an interesting contrast in crudite, when cooked, as with beans, the color turns green. Flavor is tasty and side shoots develop after the central head is harvested.
