Dear Barbara: A friend of mine told me that she found a yellow cauliflower at her Farmers Market. Then when she went back the next week, there was a purple one. She said it tasted just like the regular white ones. Is this true or do they dye them different colors? Have I been “punked?” — Lily from Lodi

Dear Lily: No, you haven’t been punked! I find it interesting that the ones we’ve been eating are white. It is the only one that isn’t natural. The edible parts are covered with leaves so the sun can not bring out any color. Cauliflower actually comes in four colors: white, orange, purple and green. They have  great antioxidants in them, and they are high in vitamin A and  C. They also have beta carotene in them.
