Cauliflower on the Wiki

  • In the 1st century AD, Pliny included what he called cyma among his descriptions of cultivated plants in Natural History: “Ex omnibus brassicae generibus suavissima est cyma, (“Of all the varieties of cabbage the most pleasant-tasted is cyma“). Pliny’s descriptions likely refer to the flowering heads of an earlier cultivated variety of Brassica oleracea, but comes close to describing modern cauliflower.

Germination: Optimal Soil temperature is 18 to 24 C (around 5-10 days to germination)
