Early Snowball Cauliflower ( Heirloom, 55 Days)


Heirloom 1888. Heads are about 5-6” across and erect. Top is a smooth, attractive creamy shade of white. This heirloom variety was introduced in the mid-1800’s by Peter Henderson, founder of Henderson Seed Company. 

30 seeds


Brassica oleracea

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 65-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 4-5 weeks before last frost. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Thin to the strongest seedling. After germination, grow in cool conditions, 57-68ºF for best results. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant a week or two before last frost. Space 18-24" apart. Sow in early to midsummer for fall crops. 

Sowing Outdoors: Spring when soil temperature reaches at least 55ºF. Sow 2-3 seeds every 12-18” apart. Thin to the strongest seedling per space. Sow in midsummer for fall crops. Germination is slower at lower soil temperatures.

Harvest: Tie up leaves around heads to blanch. Watch closely and pick before the curds begin to loosen.

Tips: Needs to be provided with fertile soil, rich in organic matter from the very beginning of its growth in the garden. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

So far so good.

It did come up both in the pot indoors and some of the seeds planted in the garden. The sprouts planted in the garden are really growing right now. The transplant, not so much but that is my experience with most transplants. It's really too early to say if I will have a harvest but it looks good so far.
