Description:

Heirloom Vegetable

Uniformly shaped, snow white heads that are thick and solid with tight curds. Good for both early and late season crops. Introduced in 1888, Early Snowball is somewhat self-blanching which means the large outer leaves tend to curl around the white head protecting it from the elements - in spite of this, many growers will still tie the leaves up and around the head to protect it. Best grown during cooler portions of the growing season.

How To Grow 350 seeds/gram Fertilize lightly & frequently, never let the plants lack for water. Seed can be sown directly in the garden in late spring. We suggest starting seed indoors 5 weeks before transplanting in late April/early May. When the heads start to form, we suggest gathering the large outer leaves and tying them over the “curd” to prevent colouring by sunlight. Harvest the head when it reaches 17-20 cm (7-8") in diameter - cut the entire head off using a sharp knife.
