Your first glimpse of this strange vegetable will have you wondering, what is Romanesco Italia? The neon green color is unearthly, and the entire head spikes unevenly. What at first appears to be from Mars, is actually a member of the Cole family, which includes cabbage, broccoli, and other cool-season vegetables.

Its more common name is Romanesco, and it produces lime green heads packed with smaller florets similar to its cousin, the cauliflower. Planting Romanesco Italia is an excellent way of providing variety in your family’s diet. The unique flavor and the crazy-looking plant are kid favorites, and they can be involved in growing Romanesco Italia.
