Snowball Y Improved' was Introduced by Ferry-Morse Seed Company in 1947, developed from the 'Snowball' cultivar which is documented as early as 1884. The name comes from the "self-blanching" snow-white heads. Well-grown examples of this variety will produce dense 6-inch wide heads of cauliflower tucked between silver-green edible leaves. Heads way 1 to 2 pounds. Considered an excellent variety for home or market use, well-adapted to short season areas, and producing relatively compact plants. Planted in spring or fall, especially suited to milder climates.
Our seed comes from our friends at Restoration Seeds in southern Oregon.
