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!

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.

What are the pros? Great raw veggie, love color!

What are the cons? None

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.

What are the pros? super sweet

What are the cons? large plant

Review:

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

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!
