History:
Snowball Self Blanching Cauliflower has a rich history dating back centuries. Originating in the Mediterranean region, cauliflower has been cultivated and enjoyed for its nutritious florets and versatility in cooking. The "Snowball" variety, known for its self-blanching trait, was developed to maintain its signature white color by naturally protecting the developing heads from sunlight exposure. This variety has since become a favorite among gardeners and chefs for its reliability and exceptional taste.

Culinary Uses:
Snowball Self Blanching Cauliflower is prized for its mild, slightly sweet flavor and tender texture. Its creamy-white heads are perfect for various cooking methods, including steaming, roasting, and stir-frying. Additionally, the florets can be enjoyed raw as a nutritious snack or added to salads and veggie trays. Its versatility in the kitchen makes it a staple ingredient in numerous dishes, from comforting cauliflower soups to flavorful cauliflower rice.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions:
Snowball Self Blanching Cauliflower thrives in cool weather conditions and prefers fertile, well-drained soil with consistent moisture. Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last expected frost date, then transplant seedlings into the garden once they have developed several true leaves. Space plants approximately 18-24 inches apart to allow for adequate airflow and room for the heads to develop. To encourage blanching, gently tie the outer leaves over the developing heads when they reach the size of a golf ball. Regular watering and fertilization will promote healthy growth and ensure a bountiful harvest of delicious cauliflower heads.
