- SONG TJS-65 CAULIFLOWER – matures ~42 days from transplant, Hybrid
This exceptionally sweet and extra-early cauliflower is sweeter and more tender than standard, white-stemmed varieties, with longer stems that are exceptional for dipping. Kitchen prep work is quick, as a few knife strokes will cut most of the florets from the heads. Typically harvested after florets have elongated and curds have started to separate, though harvesting at the same stage as standard types is acceptable. Song TJS-65 performs better in hot weather and below-average fertility than standard types in our trials. Also known as sweet-stem or loose-curd cauliflower.
