Cauliflower grows best in soil with a pH of 6.0 to 6.5 which is the same for wheat. However, sun, temperature, water and soil fertility are especially important to successful cauliflower crop production. Here is a good description of cauliflower crop production by our colleagues at North Carolina State University http://content.ces.ncsu.edu/cauliflower/
