Description

A hardy, flavoursome and beautiful purple-headed variety which turns green when cooked.

Has a close compact head.

Sow in June/July and crop in February and March.

Harvesting seed

Save seeds from at least 5 plants.

Carefully cut the cauliflower when harvesting to leave 1 or 2 branches to flower and produce seeds. Mature seed pods become dry and turn brown as the seeds inside also mature and brown.

Either cut entire branches or the whole plant and place on a cloth or contrainer and thresh by hand rubbing the pods.
