Purple Cauliflower


Purple cauliflower, with its vibrant and eye-catching color, is a unique and nutritious variety of cauliflower. It is a member of the cruciferous vegetable family, known for its health benefits and delicious flavor. The purple color of this cauliflower comes from the presence of anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants.
