Snowball Self-Blanching

68 days — In the category of "snowball-type" cauliflower varieties, 'Snowball Self-Blanching', as its name implies, has large wrapper leaves that curl inwards in the cool fall weather. This trait serves to help cover and protect the head and to help keep it blanched pure white in color. Because of this trait, 'Snowball Self-Blanching' does not require tying until heads are six to eight inches across, and that is only if you are a commercial producer. Here on our farm, for our personal use, we don't bother tying and as you can see in the photo, the heads remain a very bright white.

The flavor is mild and tasty both raw and cooked. It is an excellent snack to have in the refrigerator for those that desire crunchy, filling treats that also happen to be very nutritious and low in calories. Each packet contains 1 gram, which is approximately 240 to 280 seeds.
