Satur Farms has long manufactured blanching caps for our own use, but now have quantities available for specialty growers. We found the East Coast too humid to use row covers or to set the plants close together for self-blanching, so we looked to Europe and created a propriety cap with light excluding properties. Our caps, or 'cloches', are durable for repeated use. Capping the plants 5 days prior to scheduled harvest will yield heads with creamy white hearts. We ship in bin quantities, 500 per bin.
Home Growers can buy smaller quantities at Johnny's Seed Company.
