Our organic supplier often throws in odd veg etc as a freebie, this week we received one of these!
It was labeled as a Romanesco cauliflower.
I've never seen or even heard of these before (I'm in the uk).



This has got to be the most amazing looking veg I've ever seen (unless you know of something better?) It was tasty too

Hi Des. Yes its amazing, I kept getting it out of the box to have another look

It tastes much like an ordinary collie but its a little bit firmer, possibly a little sweeter too.

Yum. I love broccoli and cauliflower. Broccoflower is even better. That romanesco variety does seem to be the sweetest.

Don't look up purple carrots ! In fact it is human intervention that created and kept orange carrots.

Damn man and his evil sinister food shenanigans...

Hi Winofiend.
Well, its so odd that you should talk about purple carrots, we got some in the same box of veg as the collie above

It was only a few weeks back when we discovered that carrots are not meant to be orange.
Our supplier has realy opened our eyes concerning veg, potatos for instance should be small and nobbly, not large and filled with water. If you want a nice tato look out for ...think they're called Pink furry apple variety. They're so nice I could eat them on their own.

We get those sometimes in Oregon (U.S. West Coast) and they are so neat to look at. They are labeled as Broccoflower or sometimes not labeled at all. I got purple carrots this summer at the Farmer's Market, but that was the first time I had seen them.

Yummy!

I found this at a farmers' market a few years ago. Best bowl of cauliflower curry outside of India.

Now I grow it. If you pm me, I'll send a few seeds to you. You just have to look out for the black mildewy stuff that grows on it, just like cauliflower. I use neem oil to keep it away. That stuff's like the Wonder Oil of the Northern Hemisphere. I bought my seeds from heirloomseeds.com if you want a whole packet of them!

I grew some a couple of years ago! It is super tasty and the neatest looking veggie out there. I need to take more photos of the gardens, because it looked especially impressive next to the broccoli after it had been harvested a few times! It was easy to grow and seems to be an interesting cross between cauliflower and broccoli, at least in flavor.
