Cauliflower is recommended for a "Low Carb" diet!
Purple Cauliflower resulted from the discovery of a purpled coloured spontaneous mutant plant in a cauliflower field in the late eighties, and years of dedicated classical breeding at the research station "Danefeld" in Denmark. Purple Cauliflower is based on a very stable source of colour formation without the problems of previous varieties. It has been tested in many temperate and subtropical areas and proved itself to be adaptable and productive.
The purple colour is due to formation of anthocyanins also found in red cabbage and in red wine. The Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences has carried out analyses showing that Purple Cauliflower contains approximately 200 times more anthocyanin than a white cauliflower exhibiting "pinking" but with exactly the same substances. Some scientists believe that anthocyanins are actually healthy compounds belonging to the group of phenolic antioxidants. Actually this is the reason why many doctors recommend drinking a glass of red wine every day....

My germination rate has been about 25% or less. All my other seeds from other companies are doing wonderful on my tables, but my Hirt's seeds are in a category of their own, small, stunted, wimpy, or not at all. I will not be ordering from you again, and I'm sorry I wasted my money.
They immediately destroyed the seeds.
You are supposed to have a license to import seeds. I contacted the seller (Smile Seeds) to see if they had said permit, I have yet to receive a response.
Permits are required for the importation, transit, domestic movement and environmental release of Organisms that impact plants, and the importation and transit of Plants and Plant Products under authority of the Plant Protection and Honeybee Acts.
So now I am out the small money (who cares) but worse I have to hope no one near me plants those infested seeds.
EDIT 2012: just revisiting my reviews and saw this. I never had one single purple cauliflower. Not even a seedling. Will think twice about buying seeds online again. They might not have been as fresh as they should have been.
