Cauliflower Seeds - di Sicilia violetto

Brassica oleracea var. botrytis

“This old Italian cauliflower produces beautiful 10-13cm (4-5”) violet/purple tight curds, which turn bright green when cooked. Much easier to grow than its white counterpart, due to the fact that you don’t need to cover the curds. In fact, the more sunlight they get, the darker the colour becomes. The fact that this variety is less prone to pest damage also makes it many gardeners favourite. The smaller leaves make a great spring green, and once you’ve cut the head, you’ll be rewarded with new growth which can be used as purple sprouting broccoli.“

Grows best on land manured for a previous crop. Sow late March-May in 2cm (¾") deep drills (shallow grooves) 15cm (6") apart on prepared seedbeds outdoors to produce warm, moist, weed-free soil. Alternatively, sow January-February into moist well-drained seed compost. Cover with soil. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 9cm (3½") pots and harden off for 2-3 weeks before planting out. Plant out in final positions 70cm (28") apart each way.

Ideal for beds and borders. Prefers full sun or partial shade.
