It's more like cauliflower both in taste and texture but is unique in it's self at the same time. If you enjoy cauliflower I'm sure you'll enjoy romanesco and kids seem to like it too, at least mine do. The best part is I don't have to drown it in cheese sauce for them to eat it either like I do broccoli. just steam then add a little butter, salt, and pepper and they tear it up. I like raw veggies for the most part but it's not good raw but neither is cauliflower or broccoli to me.
