We have grown this cauliflower two years in a row. Most of the heads grew to be nearly 15 inches across! Talk about having plenty to freeze for winter! Our cauliflower retained it's purple color even after steaming and blanching.
68 day. A strikingly beautiful cauliflower. It is bright purple when raw and green when cooked. It has a more delicate texture than most cauliflower with looser florettes, and the head has a flatter shape than most of the white cauliflowers. Not only is it mild and delicious, it is really easy to grow. I always have problems getting cauliflower to form a nice head, but Violet of Sicily always forms a beautiful head without any effort.
Minimum of 100 seeds per packet.
