Cauliflower plant is the edible vegetable part that is called ‘Head’ or ‘Curd’. Botanically this curd is a white ‘inflorescence meristem’. This means that it is not a fully formed flower, it is a tissue which is supposed to form flowers.
Cauliflower curd does not have typical sepals, petals, anthers and ovary, therefore there is no question of any pollination, fertilization or fruit-seed formation.
Cauliflower has only 25 calories and 3 grams of fiber per cup It is an excellent choice for anyone watching their waistline. Along with its low sugar content, cauliflower has a glycemic index of just 15.
