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."

I don't think cauliflower quite makes the green cut.While it's especially high in potassium and has about the same iron level as broccoli, it isn't particularly high in calcium like a dark green veg , doesn't have comparable beta carotene or C either. I'd put it in a pale green/white category with cabbage whereas brussel sprouts or broccoli definitely make it into the greens category. I would guess a Romanesco is somewhere in between. Don't know if orange cauliflower is actually higher in beta carotene. If so, it might qualify for orange status.
