Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
Romanesco Italia Cauliflower is a biennial plant that typically reaches maturity in 65-75 days from planting. It thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-drained, fertile soil rich in organic matter. Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost date, then transplant seedlings into the garden once the soil has warmed and all danger of frost has passed. Space plants 18-24 inches apart in rows spaced 24-36 inches apart to allow for adequate air circulation and growth. Provide consistent moisture and feed with a balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth and development. Harvest when the heads are firm, compact, and reach the desired size, typically 6-8 inches in diameter, for optimal flavor and texture.
