Excellent quality standard variety, white heads, tightly packed and well protected on a small plant. In Australia sow All Year Round cauliflower seeds in successive plantings from late summer for an extended harvesting. Best results in the cooler months.
Originating from southern Italy, Mark Twain called it cabbage with a college degree. Likes well drained soil with near neutral pH and sunny spot. Keep well watered. Will cross-pollinate with other Brassicas. Mature plants tolerate frost and need the coolest part of the year to develop heads. When heads appear tie leaves over head to prevent discolouration and maintain quality. Sow late summer, autumn.
