Purple Crush Cauliflower Seeds

Striking Appearance & Delicious Taste

Renee's Garden Cauliflower Purple Crush, a standout cultivar, belongs to the Brassica oleracea species and finds its roots in Italy. This unique variety has gained attention for its striking appearance and delicious taste.

Known for its captivating aesthetic, the Purple Crush Cauliflower features stunning deep purple heads surrounded by vibrant green leaves, creating an eye-catching contrast in gardens or vegetable patches. As it matures, the color intensifies, presenting an impressive visual display.

In terms of taste, Purple Crush Cauliflower offers a mild, slightly sweet flavor with nutty undertones, making it a delightful addition to various dishes. Its tender texture and versatile flavor profile allow for diverse culinary applications, from roasting to stir-fries or enjoying it raw in salads.

Cultivating Purple Crush Cauliflower from seed requires specific growing conditions. These plants thrive in cooler climates and prefer well-draining, fertile soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. Planting from seed involves sowing them directly in the garden or containers, placing seeds about a quarter-inch deep and spacing them around 18-24 inches apart.

Consistent moisture during the growing period is crucial, especially during head formation. Adequate sunlight, at least 6 hours daily, supports healthy growth and vibrant color development in the cauliflower heads. While tolerant of cooler temperatures, protecting young plants from extreme cold or frost is beneficial.

Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Cauliflower prefers nearly neutral soils rich in organic matter. Water moderately and evenly. Cauliflower can be sensitive to boron deficiencies. Lime the soil to a pH of 7.0 or higher in areas with clubroot problems.

Planting & Growing: To ensure plump heads, time indoor sowing so that plants are no more than 5 weeks old at transplant time. Sow outdoors when soil temperatures are at least 60°F. While cauliflower requires growing conditions similar to broccoli and cabbage, it can be more difficult to grow. Any interruption in growth due to underwatering or underfertilization can cause the plant to prematurely set a small, unusable head.

Harvesting & Storage: To improve flavor and color, blanch developing heads by folding and securing a few leaves over the head. Harvest while heads are tight and compact, 4-14 days after tying up the leaves.
