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. Our favorite purple cauliflower every year!

Started indoors. Grew in high tunnel. Nice flavor and lovely color. Heads over a foot across. Cabbage moths adored it too, but we picked off worms and used Bt.

Review:

This was my “Surprise Plant” this summer. I initially started these for a winter garden and started inside in November and placed in the garden in January where all leaves and even stalks were promptly devoured by slugs. I wrote it off as a unfortunate disaster and then forgot about them. In late May, low and behold, I had 2 plants. I didn’t think there was anyway these vigorous little guys were the spindly creatures devoured down to “the studs” by the slugs.. but in fact they were the original plants which had somehow come back to life Returning a month later,(plants recieved no care& minimal water) These sturdy and stunning plants were non plussed and by the time I returned, one occupied an entire corner of the garden. The leaves were large enough to swaddle a baby and there was a purple head which would grow to the size of a serving platter. I’ve allowed it to flower and will harvest the seeds as the plant was to pretty to harvest. Well worth planting

Review:

This cauliflower has produced the best out of all the varieties I’ve tried. Even with the crazy rains we’ve had the last couple of years, it continually produced large, beautifully colored heads.

Review:

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.

Review:

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.
