Cauliflower is a cool weather plant and will not head properly in hot weather. For early cauliflower crops start seeds indoors and transplant out as early as possible. For a late cauliflower crop start seeds in place in midsummer. Try the Veronica Romanesco Cauliflower variety for a milder nutty flavor with gorgeous spiraled flowerets that look great on a relish tray and the lime green color that will brighten up any plate! There are about 8000 seeds per oz.
