Green Cauliflower Seeds

Price for Package of 20 seeds.

Smaller and easier to handle than large cauliflower, this miniature version of the cauliflower vegetable only measures about 16 - 18 cm in diameter. Nestled in firm-textured edible green leaves, the cauliflower's curd, or head, is made up of thick tightly packed clusters of light lime green flower buds. The heads of green cauliflower are also referred to as "buttons". The flavor of this tender vegetable has notes of both cauliflower and broccoli and lacks the bitterness that can sometimes be found in large cauliflower.

Nutritional Value

Green cauliflower is high in both fiber and vitamin C. It also contains selenium, which works with Vitamin C to boost the immune system as well as a fair amount of vitamin A, folate, calcium and potassium. It also contains high levels of phytochemicals known as glucosinolates which scientists believe will help prevent the onset of certain types of cancer.

Applications

Green cauliflower is excellent in both raw and cooked preparations. It can be sauteed, roasted, fried or steamed. Roasting will enhance its flavor. Segmented raw florets can be added to pasta and grain-based salads. Its miniature size is perfect for making pickled cauliflower. Pair with cream-based dips and serve whole heads of baby Green cauliflower on crudite platters or roast and serve whole as a main vegetarian entree. The flavor of baby Green cauliflower pairs well with cumin, curry, garlic, onion, Parmigiano cheese, and pine nuts. Use within a few days of purchase for optimal freshness, texture, and flavor. To store, wrap head in a perforated plastic bag and refrigerate in the crisper drawer. Do not wash until ready to use.

Poor cauliflower is usually a result of improper planting time, low moisture or low fertility. Plant your seeds indoors, 5 to 7 weeks before setting outside. Spring planting should occur as soon as soil can be worked, and fall planting is done around July or August. Plants can grow 12" tall.

Harvest Tips:

Cut heads below the inner leaves when the heads or about 8" in diameter.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile soil with compost and some lime. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of the plant.

Water Requirements:

Water regularly to keep the soil cool and moist. Keep watered during dry and hot spells.
