Broccoflower® was originally developed in Holland and has been grown in the U.S. for nearly twenty years. Its hybrid name was coined by Tanimura & Antle who first marketed it as Broccoflower® in 1989. It tastes similar to cauliflower when raw, and is milder and sweeter when cooked. Broccoflower® is a good source of vitamin C and folate.
Broccoflower® brand green cauliflower is exclusively available from Tanimura & Antle, and should feel firm, heavy and compact. The leaves should be fresh in appearance, and the heads should be light to medium green, with tight, unblemished curds.
Wash Broccoflower® just before preparing. Store in the refrigerator in an area with good circulation and away from ethylene-producing fruits to avoid discoloration, spotting or decay.
Broccoflower® can be eaten raw or cooked. Before cooking, cut florets into similar sizes to ensure uniform cooking.
Blanch or serve raw in your favorite salad or as vegetable dippers. Layer with cheese and bottled Alfredo sauce and bake for a vegetable gratin.
Stir-fry or roast with curry sauce. Mash for a colorful folate rich alternative to potatoes.
