What are the pros? color--flavor--hardiness--
What are the cons? No dislikes
This is my go to Cauliflower for sure.
We share our garden with a young couple that have 2 kids and we all have a blast, and the kids are learning about gardening.
Our garden is about 2200 square feet so its a real treat to watch the kids as they learn about how things grow.
We couldn't give them a better gift---they are becoming regular little farmers.
Momma and the kids came over today to pick and she found a head that was the most beautiful purple(I call it electric purple) and 15 inches across---YES--FIFTEEN INCHES.I sent it home with them. This cauliflower is the best I have ever grown. It turns a very light green when cooked and tastes better than any white I have ever grown.
I wish there was a way to post a picture of this gem.

What are the pros? Great raw veggie, love color!
What are the cons? None
I only like cauliflower steamed. That is, until I tasted Purple of Sicily. Started seeds in Sept, set out in early October. Temps this winter only reached 28*F so winter garden did NOT need any protection. Beautiful heads harvested in February. I don't know what they are like cooked because none made it to the steamer! A definite keeper. I follow the All New Square Foot Gardening method to the tee, with only 6" of Mix with homemade compost. I over planted some squares with 2 plants and they still did great.

What are the pros? super sweet
What are the cons? large plant
Large plant, heads separated and matured quickly. Not a lot of yield but super sweet. If you have extra room they are worth the flavor. I will not plant again due to my limited space.

What are the pros? Low maintenance.
What are the cons? slow to produce heads
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.
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.
