Although a cool weather crop, cauliflower cannot tolerate spring frosts. Requires slow and steady growth without interruptions from drought or other problems in order to produce blemish-free heads.
Growing Tips: A heavy feeder that requires rich, moist soil high in organic matter and has pH above 6.0. As it will not head up in hot weather, the creamy white curd needs to be protected. When the heads first become visible, gather the outer leaves and secure together with string or an elastic band, hiding and protecting the curd. Blanching process will encourage a pure white cauliflower.
60 days. Heads 16-17cm (6 ½”) diameter, weighing about 1 ¾ lb, compact and true white. Great for home, market and freezing.
