Looking for a reliable, heavy-yielding heirloom cauliflower seed variety? Then you'll love Snowball! Introduced by Peter Henderson and Company in the late 1800's. This self-blanching strain produces smooth, white 6-7 inch heads that are perfect for the fall and winter markets. Curds are smooth and perfect for freezing. 400 mg ~ 100 seeds.

For spring planting, start seed indoors 5-7 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 50-85 degrees. Transplant to the garden 2 to 3 weeks before your average last frost date. For fall planting, start transplants 7-9 weeks before average first frost or direct sow in garden late summer. Cauliflower should be blanched when the head is about 2 to 3 inches for a white head. Pull 3 to 4 leaves over the head and rubber band. Blanching time is about 4 to 8 days.
