Cauliflower grows best in cool, moist climate and is sensitive to low temperatures. Suitable temperature for healthy growth of cauliflower is between 17 an 18 degrees Centigrade. Temperature above 20 °C during maturity badly affects its growth. The local variety developed for early planting can withstand heat. But the variety ‘China ka Moti’ can withstand high temperature. Therefore, it is important that right variety should be selected for the right season and proper sowing. For early crop the vegetable is sown between May and August and transplanted between early July and September. For late crop, it is sown between September and October and is transplanted between October and November.
