Effect of temperature on the variability and maturity date of cauliflower

, : Effect of temperature on the variability and maturity date of cauliflower. Acta Horticulturae (52): 69-75

The length of the cauliflower maturity period was shortened by the vernalization of the transplants at 12 deg C for 5 or 15 days. For this the transplants were grown at a high temperature (22 deg ) until the end of the juvenile phase.
