80 days. Brassica oleracea. (F1) Plant produces very flavorful and large 7 to 8" heads of bright purple cauliflower. The color is retained when cooked. Great raw, boiled, steamed, or stir-fried. Tip: Adding a few drops of lemon to the water helps prevent color fading when cooked. Adds color to your salads and gourmet dishes. Heads needs full sunlight to obtain full purple color so no need to wrap heads. A must for any specialty market. Excellent choice for home gardens and market growers.

Cauliflower Seed Planting Information:

Cauliflower will not grow well where temperatures average above 75 F or where winter temperatures drop below 25 F. Poor cauliflower is usually a result of improper planting time, low moisture or low fertility. Plant your seeds indoors, 5 to 7 weeks before setting outside. Spring planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked, and fall planting done around July or August. Plants can grow 12" tall.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil with compost and some lime. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant.

Water Requirements:

Water regularly to keep soil cool and moist. Keep watered during dry and hot spells.

Fertilizer Requirements:

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Periodically apply Miracle Gro.

Harvest Tips:

Cut heads below the inner leaves when the heads or about 8" in diameter.

This was really easy for us to grow (Houston, TX Zone 8b). It looked so beautiful in our garden and I have never seen anything like it. Cooks up well and tastes just like the white cauliflower we are used to. People are blown away when they see it on a veggie platter.
