Planting and Harvesting Tips:
This cool season crop requires full sun, rich soil and abundant moisture to produce well. Start indoors 6 to 10 weeks before the last expected frost and transplant into the garden when two sets of true leaves develop. Allow 18 to 24 inches between plants and 2 to 3 feet between rows.
Harvest when heads are firm, full and compact. Cut through the stalk beneath the head with a sharp knife making sure to leave several of the leaves for protection. Spring plantings will bolt quickly in warm weather.
