Cauliflower can be grown and harvested fresh all year round using different varieties. As well as conventional white-headed types there are also varities with purple orange and green heads. Spacing the rows out allows the head to grow to full size or grow densely in containers to produce ‘mini’ cauliflowers. Can produce very high yields if given enough food and water.

Florets can be eaten raw, used in stir fry, bolied as veg. Try boiled florets with cheese sauce – yum one of my favourites.
