Description

Snowball Cauliflower Seeds

[65 days from transplant] One of the earliest cauliflowers, Snowball is a heavy yielding, heirloom variety producing large 6-8” heads and beautiful, uniform, snow-white curds. The taste is quite a bit milder than what you tend to find in the store, and when cooked the curds are superbly tender.

When grown in cooler weather (spring/fall), the outer leaves self-blanch the curds. Snowball is resistant to downy mildew and an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects

Stir fry, steam, or serve raw with dips. It freezes well, too.

Common Questions

How can you protect cauliflower plants from pests? Protect young plants from slugs with slug repellants, plant netting is recommended in the summer months to ensure no caterpillars have the chance to hatch and eat the green leaves.

What can you plant next to Snowball Cauliflower? Cauliflower loves being planted next to beans due to the nitrogen needed in the soil. Beans provide the soil around extra nitrogen which helps your cauliflower thrive when developing.

How many cauliflowers from one plant? One. Cauliflower produces one head full head per plant. Once the plant is harvested it's best to remove the stem and add to the compost pile. Careful planning is required if you plan to grow enough for an entire year!
