description for "Cauliflower: Brassica oleracea botrytis 'Purple of Sicily'"

Grow amazing taste and color with this unique cauliflower. With its purple colored heads, it provides a striking contrast to other vegetables in or out of the garden. These large heads will grow to approximately 3" in diameter and will change to a bright green when cooked. This easy to grow variety is full of flavor and tends to be more insect resistant than other varieties. Maturity in 65-70 days. Edited by S. Derr
