Cauliflower 'Clapton' F1 Hybrid (Summer/Autumn)
Brassica oleracea (Botrytis Group)Over 18 years of conventional breeding have been invested in this clubroot resistant variety. Cauliflower ‘Clapton’ is the first cauliflower with resistance to this devastating brassica disease. Depending on its sowing time this versatile variety matures from late summer to late autumn, producing large, excellent flavoured, solid, deep white heads of uniform quality. Height: 45cm (18”). Spread: 60cm (24”).
Andrew Tokely says: "Both myself and many other allotment growers believe that Cauliflower Clapton has changed the way that we grow cauliflower. Its Clubroot Resistance is almost foolproof on all soils, even if this dreadful soil borne disease has been present before. Also good sized curds are produced and melt in the mouth".More info
