The days from the appearance of the flower ball to harvest of cauliflower vary with varieties and climate(72 cell trays bulk). When the temperature of early maturing varieties is relatively high, the formation of flower balls is fast, and they will be harvested in about 20 days. The formation of flower balls is sometimes very inconsistent between individual plants, and should be collected by stages(small potting pots). It is strictly prohibited to harvest at noon.(cheap plastic one gallon pot manufacturers in china)
The standard of cauliflower harvesting is that the flower ball is fully grown, the surface is round, and the edge is not yet scattered(blow molded nursery pots). Early harvest affects the yield, too late the surface of the flower ball is uneven, yellow color, poor quality. To keep the flower ball white and tender, stop watering 4-5 days before picking(plastic tree containers). Generally, cauliflower bulbs are bare, with high water content, and can be harvested when the texture is crisp and tender.
