How should cauliflower be checked for bugs?

Description:

Cauliflower is a white vegetable resembling a miniature tree. Its thick central stem divides into many smaller branches, which are crowned with tightly clustered white florets.

Infestation:

Thrips may be found on the thin white branches or between the tightly packed cauliflower florets. These insects are easily discernible as their black color contrasts with the white vegetable. Small orange insects may at times be seen clinging to the outside of the cauliflower. These insects are easily washed off.

Inspection:

  1. Separate and remove cauliflower florets from the stem.
  2. Examine several pieces of the cauliflower paying careful attention to the under part of the floret.
  3. Wash thoroughly before using.

Heads of cauliflower that are found to be infested are difficult to clean and should not be used.
