It is very productive, more compact and resistant than other varieties. It has an uniform production and excellent quality. The seeds of this variety we offer are Organic.

It is an early variety with a vigorous light green foliage and wavy edges covering the head, preventing the yellow flesh by contact with the sun, rain or frost. It is easy to maintain and is intended for small gardens, since being more compact can be planted closer to each other.

Planting is in January indoors, or from March outdoors, we can also sow in September-October for a winter crop.Although it is said that the Cauliflower Snowball is an early variety, really it can be grown throughout the year. Usually cauliflower is planted first on trays or seedbed and then, is transplanted to their final place, sunny with partial shade. We sow superficially trying that the seeds remain separate and then, we cover them with 1 cm soil. When the plants are about 7 cms we can transplant them leaving a gap of 40 cm between them. We must keep the soil moist constantly.
 
It ripens 65-70 days after sowing. To harvest, we cut the cauliflower at ground level with a knife. Cauliflower Snowball is suitable for canning and freezing. To freeze, first we must boil 3-5 minutes then, we cool them with ice water and once they are very dry we place in containers or bags in the freezer.
 
Cauliflower Snowball has a mild flavor, we can eat it raw in salads and as a snack or cooked in soups, stews or sauteed. They are delicious with a cheese sauce or baked au gratin.
 
Cauliflower is rich in vitamins, nutrients, folic acid (highly recommended in pregnancy) and fiber. It has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, diuretic and cleansing properties. It helps lower cholesterol and improve heart function and digestive.

It is advisable to plant the cauliflower along with rosemary, thyme, sage, garlic, beets, celery .However we should not plant it next to strawberries, tomatoes, onions, cabbage and potato.
