Di Sicilia Violetto Cauliflower
Brassica oleracea (Botrytis) 'Di Sicilia Violetto'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
Traditional cauliflower, or cavolfiore, of eastern Sicily, particularly in the area of Catania. The compact heads turn to a beautiful violet hue in autumn. The colour is due to the accumulation of anthocyanins which turn to a rich green when cooked. Raw or cooked, the sweet mild taste is squisito! Even after the main head is cut, it keeps on producing numerous side shoots that are just as tasty. This is an heirloom variety that will easily become a favourite. Typically planted in the summer for late fall harvest, and in milder areas, it will often come back to produce more shoots in the spring. 100 days.
