Beautiful, brilliant purple heads weigh 2-3 lbs and are of a fine, sweet flavor. The heads cook to bright green. Insect-resistant variety that is easier to grow than many white varieties; rich in minerals. A colorful heirloom. Select Italian seed.

What are the pros? Color

What are the cons? It took a while

Review:

I'm in zone 8 so I planted them in the early spring knowing that I would have to battle the bugs for it. It wasn't too bad compared to the hit my collards took. I know they like cool temps but fall wasn't long enough last year so that prompted the early start this year. Although they took longer than some white cauliflower starts I got from a nursery I will have in the garden next year. I will also try the cheddar cauliflower. The different color vegetables make me more excited about gardening and they definitely get kids excited about eating more vegetables.

What are the pros? Insect free.

What are the cons? No dislikes!

Review:

The easiest cauliflower to grow. It was insect free the entire season. The head development was such fun to watch. Head was the most beautiful purple, very compact and large in size. The flavor was delicious! Continues to grow when the temperature dropped into the low 30's. Enjoys cooler temps. It is the best!

What are the pros? Robust plants

What are the cons? Praying I get some cauliflower

Review:

I planted a fall crop of cauliflower. I did my research and decided to get some Purple of Sicily seeds and started these in late July. I had my hubby build me some new beds and I had them planted late August. They plants GREW. They are huge and in early November they are popping out of the beds. I have the tiniest little heads covered completely by leaves (I had to dig around to find them). Zone 5 usually is freezing around this time of the year but we have had quite the awesome warm spell (70's when we usually are in the 40-50's with overnight lows below freezing). I am afraid that I will not get anything from my cauliflower babies. This could be completely my fault for not planting early enough or over crowding the beds. I will lay a little more organic fertilizer down and I'm covering these beds with some plastic row cover and praying for a miracle. I had 100% germination rate and gave some away to fellow gardeners. I'm going to try again next season.

What are the pros? water

What are the cons? chickens scratching around it

Review:

Every year we introduce another veggie to our families palate. This year was cauliflower. Having all girls they fought over who was able to eat more. Just because it was a beautiful purple:).

What are the pros? Bugs don't like, great flavor

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew this and a typical white headed cauliflower at the same time, these sprouted faster and grew well without bug infestation. We grow without chemicals and since I had no row cover for bug protection, these purple heads were left alone while the bugs feasted on my white headed cauliflower and other brassicas (except for the purple cabbage, bugs don't seem to like purple.) Cabbages don't like the full heat of summer so start early in the season to get them to head up before the harsh heat sets in, or plant where they will be in shade during the heat of the day. I started mine indoors and transferred them outside when the harsh of winter was past. All planted gave lovely purple bug-free heads. These also stored well in the fridge for several weeks as we worked through eating them.
