Good quality medium-sized heads with pure white curds when blanched. Sturdy compact plants. Space 20 in. apart in the row. Not self-blanching. For pure white curds tie or rubber band leaves over forming heads to protect from the sun. An improved Erfurter Zwerg for spring or autumn planting. For a good crop sow in rich greenhouse soil and transplant into well-prepared garden beds outside when the young plant has 4-5 leaves.

Product Description

DAYS TO HARVEST
70 from transplant

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.

LIGHT PREFERENCE
Partial to full sun

SOIL REQUIREMENTS
Prefers clay-loam soils with a pH close to neutral. May require additional calcium or boron.

PLANT HEIGHT
14-18″

PLANT SPACING
~20″ in between plants

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.

HARVEST
Watch the main stem as it starts to form a head – if blanching, tie string/cloth strips or use a rubber band leaves over the forming heads to protect from sun. Check the head as it forms and remove main head as the head starts to separate.
