Green sprouting cauliflower is available in the early spring.
Green cauliflower is a hybrid of cauliflower and broccoli, both members of the species Brassica oleracea. Cauliflower, botanical name Brassica oleracea var. botytis, belonging to the plant order Capparales, is a cool season biennial. Sprouting cauliflower develops from buds located in the bases of the older leaves and share similar characteristics to mature cauliflower but on a smaller scale. Green sprouting cauliflower is an underutilized culinary ingredient because it is rarely left to develop.
Green sprouting cauliflower forms small stalks with green floret clusters at the very top. Similar to regular green cauliflower, the stalks are firm and tender, and the florets have a soft and crumbly texture. Its flavor is mild with nutty, sweet nuances. The entire Green sprouting cauliflower, its stalk and florets, are edible.
