It’s a strange vegetable and I was expecting the boys to pronounce it the Devil’s brassica.  One won’t eat it as it’s green (and he’s 25!) but the other has taken to it with barely a raised eyebrow.


I love it’s pointy, swirly design but its flavour doesn’t live up to that promise – it’s insipid which probably explains why all recipes roast it with garlic and or lemon.  The last of this harvest was lightly boiled and served with roast chicken.  I’ll grow it again this year, but will be more adventurous with how I cook and serve it.


I still can’t decide if this is a cauliflower or broccoli – what do you call it?
