• The vivid lime apple green heads of this extraordinary vegetable has to be seen to be believed, bit of a cross between broccoli and cauliflower.


    Its nuttier, sweeter and children tend to like it.


    Rich in fibre, vitamin C and antioxidants, flavour is absolutely delicous with a crunchy fresh texture.


    It dates from 500 years ago in Italy and is a heirloom variety.Looks almost too good to eat, once main head has been harvested will then  produce several smaller heads over the next few weeks.
