Cauliflower Incline


Available on backorder


The ‘Incline’ variety of cauliflower, like other cauliflower varieties, requires specific growing conditions and care. However, as of my last training data in April 2023, ‘Incline’ cauliflower wasn’t specifically recognized as a distinct variety. It’s possible that it’s a newer variety or a less common one.

In general, when growing any type of cauliflower, including an unfamiliar variety like ‘Incline’, you would follow standard cauliflower growing practices. Here is a broad guideline which should be applicable:

1. Seedling Preparation

  • Start with healthy seedlings, which you can grow from seeds or buy from a nursery.
  • Seedlings should be 4-6 weeks old with strong stems and developed leaves before transplanting.

2. Timing for Transplanting

  • Cauliflower prefers cooler temperatures. In most regions, it’s best to transplant in early spring or late summer for a fall harvest.

3. Soil Preparation

  • Choose a planting site with well-drained, fertile soil. Cauliflower prefers a soil pH between 6.0 and 7.0.
  • Enrich the soil with organic matter like compost or well-rotted manure.

4. Transplanting

  • Space the plants about 18-24 inches (45-60 cm) apart to allow ample room for growth.
  • Plant the seedlings at the same depth they were growing in their pots.
  • Water the plants thoroughly after transplanting.

5. Watering and Care

  • Keep the soil consistently moist. Cauliflower requires regular watering, especially in dry conditions.
  • Mulch around the plants to help retain soil moisture and suppress weeds.

6. Fertilization

  • Apply a balanced fertilizer a few weeks after transplanting to promote healthy growth.
  • Avoid over-fertilizing, as too much nitrogen can encourage leaf growth at the expense of the cauliflower head.

7. Pest and Disease Management

  • Regularly inspect for pests like aphids and caterpillars.
  • Employ appropriate pest control methods, ideally opting for organic options when possible.
  • Rotate your crops each year to prevent disease buildup in the soil.

8. Harvesting

  • Harvest the cauliflower heads when they are compact, firm, and reach the desired size.
  • Cut the head off the plant with a sharp knife, leaving some leaves around the head to protect it.

9. Post-Harvest

  • After harvesting, you may leave the plant in place to see if smaller heads (shoots) develop, which are also edible.

If ‘Incline’ has specific characteristics or needs, it would be advisable to seek advice from a local nursery or agricultural extension service that might have more current information on this particular variety.
