Large 10" heads form on sturdy plants, in 70 days from setting out in the garden. What is truly amazing about this variety of cauliflower is that they have self-wrapping leaves that protect the curds from sunburn and cold. No more tying leaves when the florets form. Tight florets form a nice round cauliflower bursting with flavor. For spring, start seeds indoors 5-7 weeks before moving them into the garden. For a fall crop, start seeds in late summer.
