Buying Tips

Cauliflower can be found in the produce section of most health food stores, specialty markets, and supermarkets. Choose a firm, heavy head with compact, cream-colored florets and no sign of brown specks, which form as cauliflower ages.


Besides the common white variety, cauliflower is occasionally found in green and a vibrant purple color that turns pale green during cooking. According to USDA nutrition information, green cauliflower provides extra vitamin A and slightly more vitamin C than white. Baby cauliflower is also available.
