What are Baby Cauliflower?
Baby colored cauliflower are miniature versions of conventional cauliflower, about 2-4 inch diameter. The orange and purple cauliflower are higher in antioxidants than white cauliflower. Purple cauliflower’s true origin is not known, but the purple color is natural. It is the antioxidant anthocyanin that gives it the purple pigment. Although it may look different than the popular white variety, the taste is just the same. The mild, sweet, and nutty flavor of traditional cauliflower is still present in these colorful florets.
