If you’re interested in growing vegetable crops that aren’t just cheap but also profitable, you should choose Cauliflowers. Here are the reasons to start growing them and how to do it.

Important Questions

What’s a Cauliflower?

Cauliflower is a vegetable crop from Cauliflower Seeds. It’s one of the three plants that grow into a giant crop.

Additionally, consuming them gives you +75 Energy and +33 Health.

You can only tend it during the Spring Season, and setting it out in Summer will be a waste of time since it’ll wither right away.

How to Grow Cauliflower?

Growing it in Stardew Valley isn’t difficult. All you have to do is till the soil and place the seed on the cultivated ground. Make sure also to prepare some scarecrows to keep the birds away from your crop. You have to be patient as it takes 12 days to harvest them.

However, you can speed up its growth by getting into the Agriculturist Profession, making it grow 10% faster.
