Macerata Green is a large green headed variety that does not produce flowers early.The bracts will keep tighly bound together for a long period, thus preventing early opening of the flower heads. The green colour is quite noticeable and does not diminish with cooking. The very well flavoured heads take about 190 days to reach full size and often weigh in the vicinity of 1.6 Kg. This variety originated near Macerata in Italy on the Adriatic coastline. Cauliflowers like cool weather for fastest development and need well drained, well limed, rich soil for best flavour. Plant the seeds from October to April in Cool and Temperate areas and from February to April in Tropical and Subtropical areas. The seeds should be sown 0.5-1.0cm deep about 50-75cm apart in rows 75-100cm apart. Cauliflower like other members of the Brassica genus, requires a fertile soil with good moisture-holding capacity. It does not generally do well in hot weather, the best success being with Autumn & Winter plantings. A full sun position is advantageous.
