70-80 days. Snowball Y Improved Cauliflower Seeds. Brassica oleracea var. botrytis. Non-GMO. Open Pollinated. Also known as "Self-blanching" cauliflower, Snowball y Improved is preferred among commercial growers for its ability to blanch ("whiten") itself without a labor-intensive process.

This unique cultivar covers its own edible head with long wrapping leaves to best protect itself against the sun. ~8,000 seeds/oz.
