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.

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.
