Lavender RZ is a smooth, well covered, round, dense purple cauliflower which can be used both for pre pack and processing. The purple colour extends from the top of the floret down the stem of the floret. Curd is dense, well presented and has a smooth, rounded appearance. Colour ( like all purple types) is best retained during cooking by steaming or microwaving as boiling can cause colour to leach. Maturity 70 days mid summer to 80 days in Autumn.
