Description

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.
