Cauliflower - Sprouting - Cultivation
Sprouting cauliflower is a hybrid that is allowed to overly mature and form long stems with small white florets, or heads, that are open resembling a flower. Sprouting cauliflower has the same cultivation techniques as growing regular cauliflower. It is a cool-season vegetable that requires stable weather, full sun, and loamy soil rich in organic matter. The weather needs to remain within the range of 60-68 degrees as Sprouting cauliflower will not produce large heads when the temperature drops above or below that range. Sprouting cauliflower is also sensitive to moisture in the soil and needs an even amount to produce quality heads. It should frequently be watered and never allowed to dry out completely. Providing nitrogen fertilizer and mulching will help keep moisture and nutrients in the soil. Sprouting cauliflower can be planted in the early spring or fall, depending on the climate, and will take over 2-3 months to mature and sprout.
