Cauliflower "Bora" (Brassica oleracea convar. botrytis) is a very early variety, producing rich crops of compact, clearly white heads intended for direct consumption. Densely packed florets without the anthocyanin stains might be harvested already 60 days after the start of cultivation, in June or July. The "Bora" cauliflower contains high amounts of B vitamins and vitamin C. It also suplies minerals, such as kalium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, iron and zinc.
Cauliflower seeds are sown in spring - early sow into a hotbed or production pots is possible already at the end of winter, while the direct sow takes place mid-spring. If we wish to harvest early, cultivation in plastic foil tunnels would be recommended. Cauliflower "Bora" is rather demanding in regard to nutrients, hence it yields richest crops in humous, compost or manure enriched, moist soil on a warm and sunny site.
