What are the pros? Color, flavor, heat tolerance
What are the cons? Absolutely nothing!
I decided to let the small, spreading heads go in June and I took the rubber bands off the leaves. Going into July, in mid-80 degree heat, the heads tightened back up and doubled in size. I gave them plenty of water and figured I would see what it would be like for them to go to seed, but instead, I ended up with large, vibrant heads of cauliflower. I started from seed in February and planted around the 1st or 2nd week in April. The dogs had dug them up a few times, but I just kept putting them back in the soil and watering. We also had a nice little hail storm. This was my first time growing cauliflower and I will do it every year now. It seemed like no matter what happened to set me up to fail, these unbelievably robust plants just kept getting stronger! Beautiful, thick, and violet stalks on the established seedlings. If you can't get these going, then try selling vacations over the phone!
