Fioretto Stick Cauliflower

60 days. Stick Cauliflower is like nothing you've ever seen in the veggie world. Instead of a dense head of fused Cauliflower buds, this wonderful oddity produces bright green, loose stems topped with white flower buds. Sweeter, softer and more flavorful than traditional Cauliflower, enjoy whole Stick Cauliflower stems either raw or steamed or sautéed with just a hint of butter and sea salt. (F1.)

One packet of about 25 seeds

Cauliflowers are a popular subject for painters, potters and tapestry makers all over the world, and are no less charming in the potager garden. This Brassica is a heavy feeder and likes sweet soil; plant in soil that is rich in organic matter, adding dolomite lime as needed. Best grown as transplants: start seed indoors 8 weeks before transplanting into the garden (2 weeks prior to the last spring frost date or in early summer for fall harvest). Harvest Cauliflower while the buds are tightly closed, using a large sharp blade to cut it off at ground level. One of our favorite comfort foods is steamed Cauliflower lightly baked with a soul-warming, white cheese sauce with a healthy dose of freshly grated nutmeg. Yum. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 3 years.
