Seed Count

This bright and balanced hybrid vegetable is more delicate than standard cauliflower in addition to boasting a more vibrant, balanced taste with a subtle sweetness that becomes more pronounced when cooked.

The coral-like florets of the Fioretto resemble tiny flower bouquets atop its long, slender stems. These stems create a unique appearance compared to other cauliflowers, and also offer additional culinary delight. Fioretto requires minimal preparation and can be enjoyed raw, steamed, grilled, stir-fried or roasted for a fresh and satisfying side dish.

Cooking Information

Fioretto can be used in place of standard cauliflower to liven up traditional recipes. Enjoy Fioretto raw in salads and slaws, or lightly sautéd for a minute or two to add a touch of golden caramelization. The long stems lend themselves to dipping, either cooked or raw.

When roasted, Fioretto becomes delectably tender and combines wonderfully with various herbs, spices and other ingredients. The florets also work well for a unique take on tempura, especially paired with lime and sea salt.
