Cauliflower

Purple Cauliflower

Cauliflower is available all year round, but it is at its best in the cooler months. Part of the cabbage family, cauliflowers are an excellent source of vitamin C and dietary fibre. The best way to choose a cauliflower is to look for firm, creamy white heads with the florets pressed tightly together. A yellow tinge indicates that the cauliflower is over-mature. All leaves should be bright green and crisp.

The Adelaide Showground Farmers Market also has an unusual variety of cauliflower available - it’s purple! The purple colour comes from the antioxidant ‘anthocyanin’, the same antioxidant found in red wine.
