Romanesco is an old variety from Italy. It is a cauliflower which can sunbathe, so it gets its nice light green. It is ideal for incorporate into the childrens diet because of their milder, sweeter taste and greater intake of vitamin D.

Planting is in January indoors, or from March outdoors, we can also sow in September-October for a winter crop. Cauliflower Minaret can be grown throughout the year. Usually cauliflower is planted first on trays or seedbed and then, is transplanted to their final place, sunny with partial shade. We sow superficially trying that the seeds remain separate and then, we cover them with 1 cm soil. When the plants are about 7 cms we can transplant them leaving a gap of 50 cm between them. We must keep the soil moist constantly.

It ripens 65-70 days after sowing. To harvest, we cut the cauliflower at ground level with a knife. Cauliflower Minaret is very suitable for freezing. To freeze, first we must boil 3-5 minutes then, we cool them with ice water and once they are very dry we place in containers or bags in the freezer.

Cauliflower Minaret has a softer and sweeter flavour than other varieties, we can eat it raw in salads and like a snack, or cooked in soups, stews, stir-fry ... They are delicious with a cheese sauce or baked au gratin.
