Joan, I don't have the details in front of me, but cauliflower can be 
easily tissue-cultured, and makes great intro material for beginning 
students. A cauliflower head right from the store will work well, I 
understand. Sorry I can't provide details, but I think a quick literature 
search will turn up plenty, because this is fairly commonly used for 
intro courses.
