Early Snowball

55 days — The heads are smooth, pure white in color, average between three to five pounds in weight and about six inches across. It is a medium-sized plant with good foliage coverage and mature uniformly. It is reliable, excellent fresh and also freezes well.

It was originally bred and introduced by Ferry-Morse Seed Company in 1941. Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 60 to 80 seeds.

Although the name of this variety's description contains another company's name, the seed we are offering is in no way sourced from, "owned by" or connected with that company. The name is simply historically accurate information for the variety giving credit to the seedsman that originally released it.

No cauliflower this year
We ordered this variety and started it in our greenhouse at the same time we started the broccoli (Atlantic). All the seedlings went out to the garden at the same time, in mid-May. Of the 50 cauliflower plants we put in, only two developed heads, and one of them bolted almost immediately. The rest of the plants are large and healthy--with no cauliflower. It's just one of those weird crop failures, but we'll probably do a different variety next year.

VSC NOTES: Successfully producing nice, cauliflower heads is definitely more tricky and less forgiving than other brassicas like broccoli. Cauliflowers tend to be much more prone to shock so direct sowing as early as possible is preferred or setting out transplants when they are very tiny is usually o.k. And timing is everything. Transplanting late in the spring combined with shock can trigger bolting. An alternative to spring planting is to sow seeds in the garden in the summer for a fall harvest. Additionally, depending on your climate, sowing late summer - early fall for overwintering is also an option. ~Mike
