Cauliflower Rani or the white cauliflower is the most commonly found and grown variety in India and China. This is the variety that one can casually find in farmer’s markets and regular vegetable displays. For us, Indians, the white cauliflower forms an important part of the staple vegetarian diet. The white variety is not only native to the Indian subcontinent and China but also found in Northern Europe, U.S and other countries. The white variety has a copious white curd and can be harvested after 90-95 days of transplanting. The white cauliflower is also quite versatile and can be eaten in a variety of ways which include fried, steamed, mashed, boiled, roasted, or simply cooked with other vegetables. It is as nutritive as the other varieties and is abundant in Vitamin C, K, and other essential phytochemicals. However, it does not contain the flavanoids and pigments like the purple variety and hence does not provide health benefits that the purple cauliflower does. All-in-all, it’s a really great food to add to your diet!
If you are looking to add diversity and more healthful options in your kitchen gardens, then the white cauliflower makes a great addition.
