Cauliflower, Alpha 7

Small white, fine quality dense heads, grow quickly and mature in 68-70 days. Cauliflowers originated from southern Italy. Mark Twain called it cabbage with a college degree. They prefer well drained soil with near neutral pH and sunny spot. Keep well-watered. Cauliflower 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 discoloration and maintain quality. Sow late summer, autumn.
