Types of Cauliflower

There are 4 types of cauliflower.  They all have the same taste for the most part just a different color.

  • White-Known as the most common type of cauliflower.  It actually is a flower.
  • Purple-The purple color in this cauliflower is caused by the presence of anthocyanins, water-soluble pigments that are found in many other plants and plant-based products, such as red cabbage and red wine
  • Green-Sometimes called Broccoflower, it tastes the same as white cauliflower.
  • Orange-The orange colored cauliflower contains beta-carotene as the orange pigment, a provitamin A compound. This orange trait originated from a natural mutant found in a cauliflower field in Canada.
