Planting and care

  • 5 inches of water each week; with normal rainfall, this usually requires supplement watering

  • Note that the cauliflower will start out as a loose head and it takes time for the head to form
  • Many varieties take at least 75 to 85 days from transplant
  • Be patient
  • When the curd (the white head) is about 2 to 3 inches in diameter, tie the outer leaves together over the head with a rubber band, tape, or twine

  • When the heads are compact, white, and firm, then it is time to harvest them. Ideally, the heads will grow 6 to 8 inches in diameter. Cut the heads off the plant with a large knife. Be sure to leave some of the leaves around the head to keep it protected.
  • If the heads are too small but have started to open up, they will not improve and should be harvested.
