Serbajadi F1 Hybrid Cauliflower - Brassica oleracea L. Botrytis group, syn. Var. botrytis L.
Cauliflower is often called heading broccoli. It is a biennial plant, grown as an annual. It is grown for its white “flower” or head called the curd, which is formed at the top of the plant from shortened flower parts. Tie the leaves around the developing head to blanch it into a creamy white color. High in protein (40%), magnesium, fiber, potassium, and vitamins C, K and B6, it is ideal for slimmer as it is low in calories!
Eat it steamed, roasted or in salads.
Type of vegetable: Sprouting heads
Edible parts: The large heads of immature flowers, known as curds and leaves which can be cooked as a cabbage
Direction of Use:
Best soil: Best in soil that is moisture-retentive and prepared with generous quantities of compost. Need a higher pH than most brassicas, so the soil should be well limed before planting. Nitrogen content should not be too high.
How to plant: Best sown into an outdoor nursery bed or modules under cover and transplanted into final positions as young plants
When to harvest: Cauliflowers should be harvested when the head is tight and well formed, but before the flowers begin to open.
How to harvest: Cut mature heads a good way down the stem then cut a cross in the top of what remains to enhance the formation of supplementary heads.
Care: Cover the plants with fleece to prevent butterflies from laying eggs. Slugs, snails, aphids, and whiteflies all enjoy brassicas.
Keep away from children and pets.
Store in cool and dry place away from direct sunlight.
