Cauliflower  is a demanding cool-season edible, thriving only in temperatures below 70 degrees F. As heads start to form, they must be blanched—protected from the sun—to remain white and mildly-flavored. Wrap outer leaves over heads and hold in place with clothespins, rubber bands or garden twine. Also be on the lookout for varieties that yield green or orange heads.
