In this country, we grow purple cauliflower as a fall plant for gardens for show and color. We don't eat it. At the end of September we remove all the summer flower plants and put in purple cauliflower.

Addie...so your purple cauli is just for show?

Can it be consumed though?

same here addie! we plant ornamental cabbages too & use the long stemmed varieties in flower bouquets too.....very beautiful aren't they adds?
i was a bit sceptical at first but as the chicken & sauce were quite beige i wanted to bang in some colour as well as flavour....hence the carrots.the purple cauli did have a distinct "nuttier" flavour to the common white.....phew!!
