Despite its unique color, Orange cauliflower demonstrates the same characteristics as White cauliflower in terms of texture and flavor. The plant is made up of tightly packed clusters of florets, known as the "curd”. Its flavor is mild with subtle cruciferous and nutty sweet nuances, a taste which is amplified when roasted. The entire cauliflower, its leaves, trunk, stems and florets are all edible.
Orange cauliflower is generally available year-round.

The first Orange cauliflower was discovered in 1970 in the Bradford Marsh just north of Toronto. This cauliflower hybrid was developed in 1981 by breeder, Michael Dickson at the New York State Agricultural Station in Geneva, part of Cornell University. Development was tricky, partly because cauliflower hadn't been developed as a hybrid before. Using conventional methods, Dickson crossbred the orange cauliflower with selected successive generations of white cauliflower until he had a large market friendly variety.
