Cauliflower is a cool-season crop that is exacting in its climatic and cultural requirements. For highest quality curd (edible portion), this crop needs an average monthly temperature of 60 to 70F. Extreme heat, poor cultural practices, or both can interrupt growth and result in poor quality curd, rendering the product worthless to the processor and fresh vegetable market.
