A unique type, these bright green whorled heads on a cauliflower-type plant are widely grown in northern Italy. They look gorgeous with their spirals and taste even better than the finest broccoli. Romanesco has a pleasing nutty taste to them that can be enjoyed raw, but if cooked lightly, will still retain its flavor and unique texture. Height 24 to 36 inches.
