Cauliflower (Brassica oleracea, Botrytis group)

Long, tapering, cabbage-like leaves surround a central, terminal, fleshy, creamy white, tightly-formed head similar to broccoli, though individual flower buds are not present. There are green-headed and purple-headed varieties. Cauliflower seeds resemble those of cabbage.
