Product Description

DAYS TO HARVEST

SOWING
Start seeds indoors with soil temperatures ~60 degrees (minimum 55 degrees). Plant ~1/4″ in soil and keep evenly moist. Make sure seedlings have enough light otherwise they may become leggy and not develop properly upon transplanting. Harden off transplants around 4  or 5 weeks by bringing trays outdoors a few days to a week before transplanting. The plants should have 3 or 4 true leaves at this point.

HARDINESS
Cole crops and their waxy leaves are particularly well suited to colder growing regions especially if adapted to the area. Cauliflower usually withstands a couple frosts. This variety can overwinter down to 10 degree night temperatures for brief periods.

HARVEST
Watch the main stem as it starts to form a head – check the head as it forms and remove main head as the head starts to separate.
