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? Low maintenance.

What are the cons? slow to produce heads

Review:

I planted these as a spring crop in Southern California, inland valley of Pasadena. I started the seedlings indoors on 1/23 and transplanted in the ground on 3/6. Harvested the first head on 5/29. I was extremely worried they would all bolt when the hot weather came (average temps in June were 85, and peaked at 108!). I was convinced that they would bolt to seed after patiently waiting for 3 months. I harvested 14 heads by the end of June. Only the last head was very separated and too fibrous. The only pest problem I had was cabbage worms (white moths), but they only eat the leaves, and did not negatively affect the heads. I have already started my seedlings or a fall planting!

What are the pros? Big, beautiful, delicious

What are the cons? Turn white when cooked.

Review:

These plants were enormous. 4 feet tall by 4 feet wide with giant leaves. I would plan better next time for my spacing. They grew beautifully and produced gorgeous purple heads.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, beautiful, yummy

What are the cons? Takes long to mature

Review:

Planted starts of Purple Sicily out in April, and didn't get heads until July! I was ready to pull them as I assumed they were a flop. No way are these ready in 90 days. When they did finally did head up, they heads were small and weird, probably because it was 100 degrees F by then! The flavor and color are excellent though. I think this variety would be better for a fall crop or started really early in your greenhouse, like it February. Make sure soil is very fertile when planting so the plants can grow fast and avoid small heads. Worth it to see the neon magenta heads in the garden!

What are the pros? Color, taste

What are the cons? Low yield, late production

Review:

I started these seedlings inside and transplanted outside to a partially sunny spot. The cauliflower came in very sparsely and if not picked early, turned to seed. The color was beautiful but for the size of the plant (giant leaves) the yield was very low. With three plants I harvested less than 2 pounds of cauliflower.
