A cauliflower is an annual vegetable that is reproduced by seeds. It is a cool weather vegetable. The edible portion of a cauliflower is a curd‑like mass composed of a close aggregation of abortive flowers developed on the thick bunches of the inflorescence. The colour of the leaf is often lighter green. Winter or late-season types have curds that consist of functional flower buds, similar to broccoli. Purple cauliflower is a winter variety of broccoli. If harvested before frost, the heads taste like broccoli; after frost, the heads taste like cauliflower. Purple cauliflower turns green when cooked.
