Cauliflower grows best as a fall crop, but can be grown in spring, too.
- If you start from seed, sow seeds indoors 4 to 5 weeks before the last spring frost date.
- Plant seedlings outdoors 2 to 4 weeks before the last spring frost date.
- Plant a fall crop 6 to 8 weeks before the first fall frost date but after daytime temperatures are regularly below 75°F
Cauliflower is a sun-loving, cool-season crop to grow in spring and fall. An annual plant in the Brassica family, cauliflower’s edible white flesh is extremely healthy and considered a “superfood.”
- Cool season vegetable, perfect for microgreens
- Frost-tolerant and wonderful for fall and winter harvest
