- Self Blanche Cauliflower is so named because the outer leaves grow around the head providing a protecting cover as it grows.
Brassica oleracea (68 days) Developed by Dr. Homna at MSU. This cauliflower has self-wrapping leaves which shield the snow-white curds from sun, thus the name Self Blanching Cauliflower. This allows you time for other chores in the garden as there is no need to tie leaves around the heads. Remember cauliflower likes cool weather; plant seed in early spring or fall for best crops. Approx. 9,000 seeds per ounce.
