Cauliflower, Prestige (Organic)

Brassica oleracea. 200+ days.

Overwintering cauliflower is one of the best kept secrets of the vegetable world. So tasty and so productive, it comes on right when it is needed during the spring hunger gap. Living in the Pacific Northwest, which is one of the few places on the planet where it can be easily grown, there is no excuse to not give it a try. Prestige, like other overwintering cauliflower, has a sweet nutty flavor superior to any summer cauliflower. We like to refer to it as the cashew of the PNW garden. Over the years we have trialed a dozen overwintering cauliflower varieties and Prestige is our favorite. It is the most reliable and produces the highest quality heads. All overwintering cauliflower prefers a maritime climate with winters that do not typically drop below 15°F. Sow in the summer for spring harvest of light-white heads from April through May, it is definitely worth the wait! We are proud to source our seed from our friends at Uprising and we thank them for producing this valuable variety.

Seed produced by Uprising Organics in Lynden, Washington.

As required by the Oregon Department of Agriculture & the Washington Crucifer Quarantine, all Brassica family seed lots have been tested & found negative for blackleg (Phoma lingam) by an approved, certified lab.

Geographical Origin

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil June through late July for harvest February through March. Transplant into the garden about 3-4 weeks after sprouting. May also be direct sown. Not for summer production, but a great choice for winter gardens in our area.

Seed Saving

Collect seed from 50 or more plants when pods are dry. Dance on seed stalks on a tarp to thresh. Collect seeds and winnow to clean. Isolate when flowering from other flowering Brassicas of the same species, B. oleracea, by ½ mile.

    Where did you grow this variety? Oregon

    The first year I grew this, in my Newberg, OR garden, I thought it would never head up. But by the end of March beginning of April heads started to form quickly. Great flavor. Tight curd. Highly recommend for overwintering cauliflower.
