A very early variety intended for forcing and the earliest field growing. The heads are white, slightly bumpy, firm and highly resistant to turning violet and yellowing. The growing time from sowing to harvest is 58-63 days. The recommended plant spacing is 40 x 40 cm.
Cauliflower requires good quality soil, rich with nutrients and with an ability to retain water. As well as good autumn fertilising with manure, it is necessary to ensure there is sufficient calcium and for the development of the heads the levels of trace elements (manganese, magnesium, boron and molybdenum) are important. Sowing of seedlings for the earliest cultivation is from January directly into trays and later on into greenhouses. Seedlings for spring growing need to be hardened off in order to be able to survive extreme cold (-6°C). Direct sowing is possible with varieties Delta and Octavian. The recommended plant spacing for direct sowing is 60 cm between the rows, reduced to 40-50 cm with precision drilling and 5 seeds per metre.
Seed consumption: 130-150 g/ha for well-calibrated sowing into seed trays. 200-250 g/ha for direct sowing.
After reaching the required size for the heads, which for the earliest varieties is approximately 60 days after planting. Late varieties with well-covered heads can be harvested after frost down to -5°C.
