A Splash of Color

Plant breeders have developed eye-catching varieties of cauliflower that features orange, purple or green florets instead of traditional white.

I love the "new" colors! That reminds me of last Thanksgiving. My hostess' son is not a veggie eater at all. I was eating a purple carrot from the roasted veggies I brought. He looked over and said, "WHAT is THAT?!" "It's a carrot!" I said. He said, "That is NOT a carrot!" Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing I went and explained about red cabbage/ green cabbage, etc. He didn't believe me. Wouldn't try one. And kept looking at me funny like. Rolling on the floor laughing

My daughter hates califlower but she will eat the broccoflower (the green one) because its a fractal.

No matter the color, they all taste the same.

I'll bet Texas A&M has developed a maroon cauliflower - or is working on it.
