Description
It may seem like a gourmet vegetable would be harder to grow than a classic one but this cauliflower is easier to grow than the white varieties! Less likely to get attacked by pests, it’s growth is fast and the taste direct from the garden is like nothing you would have tasted before!

It’s sweeter and milder than white varieties and for that reason alone should hold it a place in your veggie garden! Cut it off the stalk leaving some leaves and it will grow another lot of smaller cauliflower heads!

Purple of Sicily Cauliflower (Brassica oleracea) yields, beautiful, 1 to 2 kilo heads that cook to brilliant green. To keep the colour, use it raw in salads or cook it quickly in stir fries! This nutritious super-food is rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants with a fine, sweet flavour!

An easy to grow variety with a milder and sweeter taste than white cauliflower cultivars. The dense, bright purple floret head contrasts nicely with the grey-green leaves of this cultivar.

The entire cauliflower plant is edible, including stalk and leaves, although best when cooked. Can be made into soup or added to stews, stir-fries and bakes. Also nice when roasted with garlic and balsamic vinegar.

Grow Notes
Cauliflowers like full sun and a rich, free-draining soil. They are a heavy feeder, so incorporate compost into the soil prior to planting if lacking in organic matter. Add garden lime to the soil if acidic.

Cover the developing heads with the leaves, loosely tying them in place with string, to prevent the heads from damage or fading in the sun. Tolerates frost once established.

Sow
Cauliflowers require cold weather to encourage them to produce a head of florets, to achieve the required amount of chilling they need to be sowed at certain times. In cold regions sow from mid-Spring to late-Summer, in temperate regions sow from mid-Summer to late-Autumn, in the sub-tropics sow from early-Autumn to early-Winter. In the tropics sow from mid-Autumn to mid-Winter.

Sow cauliflower seeds direct or raise seedlings, plant seeds 6mm deep, spacing plants about 50cm apart. Keep soil moist not wet.
