Veggie Unearthed

Your organic Romanesco Cauliflower is coming to us from Brown’s Farm in Orange Heights, FL — less than 100 miles from most of our customers’ homes.

The flavor is like a cross between broccoli and cauliflower with a sweet nuttiness, but is not a broccoflower in species. It is often referred to as “Broccolo Romanesco” or “Roman Broccoli.” Though it looks like something out of The Matrix, it has been cultivated since the 16th century in Italy. It’s packed with fiber, vitamin C and antioxidants, but is naturally low in calories.

We suggest eating your Romanesco within three-5 days, but if you wrap it loosely in a plastic bag or glass container, it should keep longer.

For more information and a preparation demonstration, please watch this helpful video.
