Resembling a colorful celery stalk, this vegetable is most commonly used as a fruit and grows in two main varieties. Field-grown rhubarb has attractive dark red stalks and green leaves.
Midgen berries are round, white fruits with grey spots that grow to about 1/4" in diameter. The small spots give the berries a mauve hue.

Green cauliflower is generally available year round.
Although the Green cauliflower is relatively new to the market, one would perhaps have expected to see it in the commercial market sooner as it is actually quite easily developed. It is a hybrid of cauliflower and broccoli, both members of the species Brassica oleracea, making them fully cross compatible. The cross is easily made by hand pollination or natural pollinators. Green cauliflower can also be found under the name broccoflower or cauliflower broccoli.
Green cauliflower displays several of the same physical attributes as its white counterpart. The plant is made up of tightly packed clusters of lime green florets, known as the "curd", that form from a single stalk, which produces green leaves that hug the base of the curd. In contrast, broccoli is made of sprouted clusters rather than curd clusters. The entire plant (floret, stalk and leaves) is edible. Green cauliflower's flavor is sweet, mild and nutty, differentiating itself from a bolder, sometimes bitter White cauliflower. As it is a hybrid, its texture is tender, yet firm, like broccoli and less crumbly than cauliflower.
Green cauliflower can be used in both raw and cooked preparations. It can be boiled, steamed, sauteed, roasted, fried and pickled. It can be used as a substitute in recipes wherever traditional cauliflower is called for. Steamed Green cauliflower can be pureed to make sauces and soups. Its flavor pairs well with robust cheeses, garlic, pine nuts, golden raisins, curry, cumin and cardamom. Keep fresh in a crisper drawer until ready to use. Rinse with water immediately prior to preparation.
Tanimura and Antle Co. developed and cultivated Green cauliflower, the first hybridized version of broccoli and cauliflower in Salinas, CA in 1980, bringing it to the market in 1988 under the trademarked name "broccoflower". A trip to Holland by company President, Rick Antle, inspired the hybrid experiment as he discovered a broccoli-cauliflower being grown there on a small scale. This hybrid had not yet been introduced to the United States so Rick purchased enough seeds to sow a field and achieve a crop.
