broccoflower

My first crop is ready to harvest. After harvesting will little shoots come up from the bottom of the cut, giving me little morsels to trim off and eat?

Broccoflower is more closely related to the cauliflower than to broccoli, so information about it can be found categorized with cauliflower at http://urbanext.illinois.edu/veggies/cauliflower.cfm
To answer your question about sideshoots, the site says: Because cauliflower does not ordinarily develop side shoots, plants may be disposed of or composted after heads are harvested.
