If you are looking to add diversity and more healthful options in your kitchen gardens, then the white cauliflower makes a great addition.
Soil needs to be very rich in organic matter. For that, you can add composted matter to the land before sowing cauliflower seeds.
It is best to sow cauliflower seeds indoors before transplanting. Transplant 2 to 4 weeks before the average frost date. Use a starter fertilizer while transplanting.
Space the transplants 18 to 24 inches apart with 30 inches of space rows.
In early spring, be ready to cover your plants. For fall crops, cover them if they require shelter from high temperature.
Add mulch to preserve moisture.
They need 1 to 1.5 lites of water every week.
Cauliflower is susceptible to the following list of pests that can cause excessive defoliation, mostly on the growing crop. Severe attacks can abort head formation, damage the heads and even lead to rotting. The pests that attack the crop are: Cabbageworm, Cabbage root maggots, Aphids, Harlequin bugs,Clubroot, Black rot.
The crop prefers loamy soil with a pH that should range between 6.5 and 6.8
Select a spot that receives at least 6 hours of sun.
Ideally, the daytime temperature while the cauliflower is maturing should be around 60ºF (15.5ºC).
how to harvest
When the heads are thick, clean, and firm, then it is the right time to harvest the cauliflower. Ideally, the heads will grow 6 to 8 inches in diameter.
Cut the heads off the plant with a large knife. Leave some of the leaves around the brain to keep it protected.
If the heads are small but have gone to open up, they will not improve and should be harvested.
If the cauliflower has a coarse appearance, it is overly mature and should be cast aside.
If you want to store cauliflower, you keep the head in a plastic bag. It should last about a week in the refrigerator.
