Fioretto 60 Cauliflower (F1 Hybrid, 60 Days)

A unique cauliflower, originating in Japan, is more of a sprouting type also known as a ‘stick cauliflower'. Plant along with, Aspabroc (#4401), they are the perfect pair for pickling, grilling, stir-frying, roasting, or just plain eating raw. Small florets with long slender stems offer a more flavorful experience with a deep nutty taste and more tender texture than traditional cauliflower. Works well in smaller garden spaces.

PLANTING

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.

Worth Trying

I was weary at first of growing this nontraditional strain, but I am glad I did. Starting out, the seedlings did not do as well as I hoped, but once I transplanted them, they really took off. Produced large heads looking just like the one shown. They really taste great raw or sauteed.
