Cauliflower, Prestige (Organic)
Brassica oleracea. 200+ days.
Overwintering cauliflower is one of the best kept secrets of the plant 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.
