Bought ramanesco....

23 December 2018
I bought ramanesco seeds, planted them and have just harvested my first purple cauliflower. (I have no purple cauliflower seeds.) I think there was a mix up with the seed packets/labeling. A bit disappointed that the seeds weren’t what I was expecting however, I love cauliflower! So it was still a nice surprise and fun watching the heads grow!

tastiest broccoli

I must admit that the germination rate was rather low but boy was it tasty!
