An article in the Economist this week includes the line "Admittedly, people were buying fewer green vegetables, continuing a long-term trend driven by declining appetite for cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts."

My view is that though cauliflower isn't green (at least the part humans normally eat isn't) it fits much better with cabbage, broccoli and sprouts in the category "green vegetables" than it does with root veg like carrots, swede and turnips.
