Cauliflower Pests

Anonymous added on September 8, 2015 | Answered

My cauliflower started turning gray at the tips, so I harvested it early. I think it could have gotten bigger, so I cut the gray stuff off the tips when I was doing so. There was this little black bug inside eating my vegetable. Is that what ruined my cauliflower? What can I do to prevent this?
