This morning I went into the veggie market/seed store and they had about a dozen HUGE cauliflower. I said “Oh, my! Those are big!” The guy who runs the place is kinda dry and he said “Yep, that’s what we call Texas cauliflower!”
That’s a full size dinner plate sitting next to it.
I have never seen a cauliflower that big. I’m sure there’s a lot of “stem” in there but he assured me it’s the best tasting cauliflower I’ll ever eat. And, it was only $1.99. I said “per pound?” Nope . . $1.99 for the whole thing.
It’s hard to read but it’s 5.4 pounds . . almost 5-1/2 pounds. Huge. Yep . . Texas size for sure! I sure wish I could grow them that big. That’s my goal . . a 5 pound cauliflower.
We love cauliflower cooked or raw and I’d rather snack on cauliflower than cookies . . I just don’t usually do it! 🙂
LOL if that were in my kitchen now it would be made into soup pronto!
What a beautiful cauliflower – looks very fresh…and white!
That is a gorgeous cauliflower! Wow!
Holy Flip !!!
Only in our Great State of Texas !!

Be sure and let us know “how good” it tasted.

We can get them like that at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday in Baton Rouge. The broccoli is just as big! I get three or so and freeze them up.
That looks yummy! I love cauliflower!

With all the healthy recipes that are being posted right now using cauliflower you could try several of them with one head! But then I could sit and eat the whole thing raw! I wonder besides being Texas what variety it is. And we have had good weather for growing it this year.

Wow. I love cauliflower. I hope it’s a good as it looks!

Cookies are easier to get your hands on, easier to eat, and do you not much good.

That would be perfect for a recipe I saw on Facebook the other day….Cauliflower Salad. Made like potato salad, but use cauliflower instead of potatoes.
We had cauliflower that big in our garden one year in March/April. It was so big it filled the sink when I washed it! The plants had not produced in the fall, so we let them winter over. We have mild weather here in the Pacific Northwest but we do have freezing spells that can last a few weeks, so it was unusual that it produced in spring. We have tried it again every year since then but to no avail!
WOW! I wonder if it had something to do with them being in the ground longer. I have never had one anywhere near that big but now I’m going to be trying my best to grown them like that.
