Romanesco Cauliflower ( 80 days )

Cultivated in Italy since the 16th century, this unique variety is still an unknown vegetable to many gardeners. Distinctive heads are a vegetable work of art; the chartreuse colored buds form and grow in a tight upward spiral, ending in a multiple pointed head of florets. It is unbelievable tasty, with a crunchy texture and more delicate, sweet nuttier flavor than regular dome-headed type cauliflower.

PLANTING

Germination-6-14 days

Indoors- 4-5 weeks before last frost 1/4” deep with soil temperature at 65-75 degrees. After germination, grow in cool conditions 57-68 degrees for best results. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out when there is little chance of frost.

Outdoors- Early spring until mid summer for fall crops. Plant 1/2 “deep and 18” apart.

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

Tips- A heavy feeder transplant/direct seed into rich, well composted soil and side dress when buds begin to form.

    Romanesco

    Purchased a few starter plants last fall from our local (CA) Master Gardener program. Harvested in December. Excellent taste. Beautiful to view. Will grow again.

    Romanesco

    Excellent product, I've been growing it for several years here in Wis. Excellent flavor, freezes just like broccoli. Gurney will rip you off for 9.99 for one packet of seed. Great price here.
