Packed with rich nutrients, cauliflower or cabbage flower is one of the commonly used flower-vegetable. The flower heads contain numerous health benefiting phtyo-nutrients such as indole-3-carbinol, sulforaphane etc., that help prevent prostate, ovarian and cervical cancers. Botanically, it is a member of the cruciferous or brassicaceae family.
Most cauliflower varieties require about 2 months to mature, although some are a little quicker and others can take up to 3 months
Since they will not form heads in warm weather and can only handle a light frost, be sure to choose a variety that will have enough time to mature in your climate
That means a fast maturing variety, if your spring or fall is short
Longer maturing varieties are good choices for gardeners with mild or late winters
