banding cauliflowerCauliflower has been the “it” vegetable these days. From cauliflower “rice” to cauliflower pizza crust, consumers are devouring this cabbage flower like never before. In fact, according to Time magazine (https://time.com/4845148/cauliflower-rice-menu/), Trader Joe’s had to enforce a two-bag limit of their frozen cauliflower rice back in 2015! It has people asking, “Is Cauliflower the new Kale?” (https://www.plated.com/morsel/trending-cauliflower-new-kale/)Truth-be-told, this is one veggie trend that has staying power. The craze exploded in 2015, and as far as we can tell, it’s still as popular as ever. This vegetable is considered to be relatively difficult to grow, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming a delicacy among the masses.

Did you know that 90% of the cauliflower grown in the United States comes from just one place? Salinas Valley in California, home of Alliance’s Agricultural Division, is the most productive agricultural region in California. It’s often referred to as “America’s Salad Bowl” as it produces a large majority of the lettuce, broccoli, peppers, spinach, and tomatoes consumed by the U.S.
