Cauliflower Snowball Seeds
Info: Cauliflower Snowball is a superb heritage variety, first bred in America in the 1890`s. The pure white, snowball-sized heads have a mild flavour and can be harvested when small, 5cm or left to mature to 15cm. Due to its dwarf size it is a perfect cauliflower to grow in the garden.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow Apr-May directly into a prepared seedbed. Sow 10mm deep into rows 20cm apart. Can be sown indoors Feb-Apr. Transplant to final growing position 5 weeks from sowing, 15-30 cm distance. Prefers a sunny position on a soil with plenty of well rotted organic matter, acidic soil should have lime added. Harvesting from end of July, when the heads are still tight and firm, cut in the morning. The curds may "yellow" if they receive too much sun, rain, or frost. Secure the plants` long leaves over the cauliflower heads to insure beautiful white heads.
