Let's face it, cauliflower is a bizarre looking vegetable to begin with. Why should we be so surprised to find an orange one? The breeders have been busy perfecting this oddity that popped up in a Canadian field back in 1970. 'Cheddar' just refers to the color, but the power of suggestion could fool the kids into trying it. They don't have to know 'Cheddar' contains about 25 times more beta carotene than white cauliflower. It also makes a fun fresh snack and a conversation started on the crudite tray.
