Snowball Cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis)
A self-balancing French variety with long leaves that offer excellent sun protection. This fast-growing variety develops 6” snowy white heads weighing 3-5 pounds. Mature heads can linger in the garden, so you won’t have to rush your harvest. Crisp and tender with a nutty, sweet flavor.
