Did You Know That Cauliflower is a Frost-Sensitive Cool Season Crop?

The cool season crops like Broccoli, Carrots, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Lettuce, and Spinach are usually planted in very late winter or early spring because we want to start 
enjoying garden fresh veggies early in the year.

We also plant them because they can tolerate late frosts.

Did You Know That Cauliflower is a Frost-Sensitive Cool Season Crop?

According to the folks at The Old Farmer’s Almanac Garden Guide (2015 Special Edition pp. 42) Cauliflower is a frost sensitive cool season crop.  If the young plants are exposed to freezing temperatures they may not produce a head (flower) at all.

They suggest this is one cool season crop that should not be planted too early without protection or plant in summer for a fall crop.
