Cauliflower

Green is usually the color associated with a vegetable side-dish -like Broccoli. That’s great, but you’ll definitely want to add the white Cauliflower to your variety. This cruciferous vegetable packs a good dose of protein, Vitamin C, Potassium and other great nutrients. At Smith’s we started growing Cauliflower alongside Broccoli and have seen it become more popular throughout the years.
