Snowball self-blanching cauliflower is a variety of cauliflower that is known for its large, white heads and mild, nutty flavor. It is a self-blanching variety, meaning that the leaves naturally wrap around the head to protect it from sunlight, keeping it white. This variety is certified as USDA Organic.
To grow Snowball self-blanching cauliflower, you will need:
Well-drained, fertile soil
Cool temperatures (60-65F is ideal)
Full sun or partial shade
Seeds or seedlings
Prepare the soil by tilling or digging to a depth of at least 8 inches. Add compost or other organic matter to improve the soil's fertility.
Sow the seeds or transplant seedlings in the spring, after the last frost date. Space the plants about 18 inches apart, and cover with 1/4 inch of soil.
Water the cauliflower regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Fertilize the cauliflower with a balanced organic fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
When the head of the cauliflower starts to form, you can tie the leaves together to protect the head from sun exposure, to keep it white.
Harvest the cauliflower when the head is fully formed and tightly packed, about 60-70 days after planting.
