Tuesday, 28 August 2012

Cauliflower is one of several vegetables in the species Brassica oleracea, in the family Brassicaceae. It is an annual plant that reproduces by seed. Typically, only the head (the white curd) is eaten. The cauliflower head is composed of a white inflorescence meristem. Cauliflower heads resemble those in broccoli, which differs in having flower buds. Its name is from Latin caulis (cabbage) and flower,. Brassica oleracea also includes cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale, broccoli, and collard greens, though they are of different cultivar groups.For such a highly modified plant, cauliflower has a long history. Fran├žois Pierre La Varenne employed chouxfleurs in Le cuisinier fran├žois. They had been introduced to France from Genoa in the 16th century.
