Organic Cauliflower - Romanesco - Whole - Australian
Fresh Australian Certified Organic Cauliflower Romanesco - whole piece with trimmed leaves and stalk.
Romanesco is one seriously cool vegetable. It's intricate, mathematical pattern makes it a fractal (you are totally allowed to nerd out on that). It's part of the brassica family (other members: cabbage, kale, and cauliflower), and has a flavor similar to broccoli. Romanesco's funky, fun appearance has been known to incentivize even the pickiest of eaters to eat their veggies, but we find that everyone, from kids to adults, loves romanesco.
Romanesco broccoli is an edible flower bud of the species Brassica oleracea. First documented in Italy in the 16th century, it is chartreuse in color, and has a form naturally approximating a fractal. When compared to a traditional cauliflower, it has a firmer texture and delicate, nutty flavor.
Portion: Various sizes available.
These are big caulifowers and truly amazing. When cooking the white cauliflower centre is bursting with moisture and mild flavour, ... when you are cooking these they will amaze you and make you smile...
Farmers: Black Crow Organics
Tammy and Dave Litzow of Black Crow Organics have owned their farm at Tenthill near Gatton for around 17 years. Before this, the farm was run as a conventional potato farm, but now it is much more of a family farm, with Tammy and Dave taking care of most of the day to day work, and their kids helping out when they can. All the crops produced at Black Crow are organic, as Tammy and Dave believe that organic food is more natural and healthier.
The farm became certified organic about 9 years ago and it has been transformed from what it once was to a farm with far healthier soil and the highest quality A grade organic produce (with a healthy family too!). They even have some worms which are over 30cm long!

Storage recommendation: As our organic fruit and vegetables are natural and not treated with any preserving agent, we recommend that that they are kept in the fridge or cool temperatures to slow down any ripening if not being eaten once received.
