Cauliflower is one of the best known and most widely eaten types of cabbage in the Netherlands. And that makes sense as you can truly do anything with it. It’s all in the name as you eat the flowers of the plant when eating cauliflower. The flowers are protected by large green leaves. For a fully no-waste meal, you can even eat the leaves. They are also very tasty when grilled in the oven.
Did you know that besides the more commonly known white cauliflower, there are also purple, green and orange cauliflower? Nevertheless, the white cauliflower remains our and the consumers' favourite. That is why at Primeale, we only grow white cauliflower.

Origin and availability
We grow our cauliflowers in three different countries. In the Netherlands, our cauliflower is mainly grown in West-Friesland. The remaining crop comes from growers in Spain and France.
Cultivation calendar cauliflower
80% of Dutch cauliflower cultivation takes place in West-Friesland, where we work with our own growers. The West-Frisian clay is extremely suitable for cauliflower cultivation. The slightly cooler weather conditions also make Friesland a very suitable location in The Netherlands.
Besides two cauliflower growing locations in the south of Spain, we also have a unique growing location in Navarra in the north of Spain. Because of these different cultivation locations, we can supply cauliflowers throughout the winter season.
For the best cauliflowers from France, we work together with our parent company Agrial in Brittany.
