Kew Cauliflower 'DePurple' Seeds
A striking, purple cauliflower with delectably textured, buttery-sweet, nuttily-nuanced lavender-blue florets. Adds colour and a rich savoury flavour to dishes.
Sowing info: Direct sow outdoors into a well prepared seedbed, for transplanting to their final positions later on. Sow at a depth of 1cm (½") and distance of 30cm (12") between rows.
Alternatively sow indoors at a depth of 1cm (½") in trays of free-draining, seed compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 21˚C (70˚F). (Germination 4 -7 days).
Growing info: Plants can be transplanted to their final positions approximately 5 weeks from sowing. Transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions until all risk of frost has passed and plants are large enough to be transplanted outside at 60cm spacings.
The distinctive colour comes from anthocyanins. To retain the colour, sprinkle with lemon juice before steaming, roasting, or sautéing.
Harvesting: June, July, August. September, October
