Peter Henderson & Company of New York first introduced Early Snowball Cauliflower to American gardeners in 1888. This member of the cabbage family forms a large smooth white head, known as a "curd", which should be harvested when still tight and compact. Thomas Jefferson recorded sowing cauliflower seed in his Garden Book numerous times.
Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before transplanting. Move to cell-packs once they have several true leaves. Harden off and transplant just before the last frost date to well-drained, fertile soil. Tolerates light frost. Approximately 150 seeds per packet.
