Cauliflowers were originated from Eastern Mediterranean around 16th century and later was imported into Italy, Germany and France.

This variety was introduced by Peter Henderson and Company in 1888. They are very popular due to appearance and tightly formed head. Snow balls are open pollinated and are known for their vigorous growth and long harvest. The heads formed are snow white in color and measures about an average of 8” across.

Growing tips

  • Soil needs be rich, mix aged manure or compost in to the soil bed.
  • Transplant seedlings 2 to 4 weeks before the last spring frost date.
  • Set plants 18 to 24 inches apart to give enough clearance for leaves growth.
  • In early spring, cover plants to protect from frost.
  • Fall crop can be planted about 8 weeks prior to the first fall frost date.
  • Cauliflower does not like any sudden environmental changes such as temperature, moisture and soil nutrition which may result in premature head development.
  • For best growth, side-dress the plants with a high-nitrogen fertilizer 3 to 4 weeks after transplanting.

When the white head is about 2 inches in diameter, tie the outer leaves together over the head and secure with a rubber band, tape, or twine to keep light out.
