Planting and care

Most cauliflower varieties require about 2 months to mature, although some are a little quicker and others can take up to 3 months. Since they will not form heads in warm weather and can only handle a light frost, be sure to choose a variety that will have enough time to mature in your climate.

That means a fast maturing variety if your spring or fall is short. Longer maturing varieties are good choices for gardeners with mild or late winters.

Sunlight: Full sun, Can tolerate light shade but will slow maturity. Light shade can be beneficial in warm weather.
Soil: Prefers well-drained, fertile soil high in organic matter, pH 6.0 to 7.5. Can tolerate slightly alkaline soil.
Water: Cauliflower needs consistent moisture and plenty of water.
Temperature: 18 to 30 degrees C
Fertilizer: Feed every 2 to 4 weeks with an organic fertilizer like kelp and fish emulsion.

Caring for Cauliflower snowball 16

  • Make sure that the plants have uninterrupted growth to avoid the plants to develop the head prematurely or ruin the edible part completely.
  • Cauliflower requires consistent soil moisture with normal rainfall, this usually requires supplement watering.
  • For best growth, side-dress the plants with a nitrogen fertilizer.
  • When 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. This is called blanching, and it protects the head from the sun and helps you get that pretty white color.
  • The plants are usually ready for harvest 7 to 12 days after blanching.

Harvesting

 

  • 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.
  • If the cauliflower has a coarse appearance, it is too mature and should be tossed.
  • If you want to store cauliflower, you can put the head in a plastic bag and store it in the refrigerator. It should last for about a week.For long-term storage, you can also freeze or pickle the heads.
