Broccoflower!?


I decided to try this vegetable in the early garden this spring. It is a cross between Broccoli and Cauliflower. The picture shows a Romanesco Broccoli. It is sometimes called a Broccoflower. It is delicious! I harvested the first head yesterday and had it with dinner. It is milder, more tender, and slightly sweeter than the other plants. It is a pretty light lime green color, and is so good. I don't know if any stores carry it, maybe you can find it at a farm stand. I just have 6 plants, and wish that I have more. I will grow it again next spring. Here is a link that describes the vegetable Farmers Alamanac.
