  • Symbol opinion vote.svg Comment: Never expected I would be declining a vegetable as promo but here we are. If there were more sources like the New York Times then this would be notable. As is, it serves to promote a specific product which is under intellectual property protection and thus needs to meet the strict definition of NCORP. Barkeep49 (talk) 15:23, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Caulilini is an Asian-style cauliflower variety having an open floret structure and long edible stems that distinguish caulilini from ordinary cauliflower. Caulilini was introduced in 2018 following two years of development. The name Caulilini is a registered trademark of Mann Packing Company and Aruba Vegetable Seed Company.[1]

Origin and Characteristics[edit]

Development of caulilini began in 2016, when Mann Packing, in partnership with Aruba Seed, conducted numerous field trials to test seeds for an Asian-style, open faced cauliflower that could be grown and harvested year-round in the Salinas Valley growing region of California. The resulting new cauliflower variety is characterized by blonde (i.e., light yellow-white), lacy florets and slender green edible stalks with a sweet succulent flavor.[2] The Caulilini product is not a hybrid between different vegetables, it is 100% cauliflower.[3] Caulilini is similar to baby broccoli in terms of its open floret structure and long edible stem; however, caulilini grows in heads, not single stalks.[4]

Cooking and Dietary[edit]

Caulilini can be oven roasted, tempura fried, sauteed and grilled. For persons with dietary restrictions, caulilini is low carb, plant-based, vegan, gluten free and low lectin.[5]

Name[edit]

The name Caulilini was selected to coordinate with Mann's earlier-developed Broccolini baby broccoli product.[6]

Trademark[edit]

The original Caulilini trademark application was filed in the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on March 10, 2017, covering fresh vegetables. First use of the Caulilini brand within the United States was at least as early as May 26, 2018. The USPTO granted trademark registration on November 27, 2018.[7] The Caulilini trademark is currently registered in the United States, European Union, United Kingdom, and New Zealand.
