Cauliflower and Romanesco Facts for Kids
Cauliflower is a vegetable that can be used in a variety of ways, but did you know it's actually a flower?
HOW IT GROWS
Cauliflower plants grow about 1.5 feet tall. The plant has large rounded leaves. In the center of the plant grows a firm group of flowers, which is the cauliflower. When the cauliflower is about the size of a tennis ball, the leaves surrounding it are tied together to shade the cauliflower. Growers could skip this step, but the cauliflower would turn yellow and buyers prefer white cauliflower.

HOW TO EAT IT
You can eat cauliflower fresh. It is also enjoyed roasted (baked). It is not recommended to boil it, because it will turn to mush - it's a flower after all!
