Cauliflower "Palla di neve".
A very early variety with white and large rounded heads of cabbage.
The plant is powerful, compact and low-growing with tight-fitting involucres of outer leaves.


* Cauliflower did not set heads until frost. How to grow it further?
Before frost sets in, remove immature cauliflower, Brussels sprouts or kale plants, plant them in boxes or large pots, buckets or bury them in a greenhouse. When frost sets in, remove them to the basement.
For growing, it is necessary to select only healthy plants with well-developed leaves and set heads. The cauliflower heads should be more than 3 cm in diameter by this time. It can be grown in a basement or greenhouse without light, but the temperature should not be below 0+2°C.
Cauliflower grown in a basement or greenhouse, as a result of the outflow of nutrients from the leaves, by the end of November or even by the New Year, depending on the variety, can form good heads. They are cut off with a small amount of upper leaves. This way they will be better preserved in the refrigerator, and for a long time.
If cabbage is well stored in a wrapper of its leaves, then do not rush to throw them away. Boil the leaves in salted water and use them in salads with fresh vegetables or as an independent dish - very tasty and original.
