Early Snowball Cauliflower – Good Source of Vitamin C and Potassium
100-year-old American standard!
Early Snowball Cauliflower makes your job in the kitchen so much easier. That’s because this cauliflower variety is self-blanching, which means its leaves tightly wrap around the head to keep the curds as white as snow. Early Snowball Cauliflower is a cool-season vegetable that harvests over a short period of time, cuts out a high head yield and produces smooth, tightly formed white curds that are crisp, tender and delicious. Eat raw or use it as a replacement for potatoes or grain side dishes like rice.
A good source of Vitamin C and potassium. Early Snowball Cauliflower also contains phytochemicals that may help to prevent certain cancers.

Early Snowball Cauliflower needs a little more TLC getting established, so plant indoors about six to eight weeks before the last Spring frost. Best results come from timing your cauliflower seedlings so they are not more than five weeks old at the time they are transplanted outdoors. Make sure to plant outdoors during cooler weather — like other cauliflower varieties, this one gets a little fussy in hot weather and may not produce as well. Soil should be nearly PH neutral and rich in organic matter. Mulch protects the shallow roots and keeps the soil moist. Harvest when heads are between six and seven inches in diameter with tightly formed white curds.
