produces very high yields of round dark green flavorful Brussels Sprouts. This variety is great for freezing.
Brussels sprouts, is a hardy, slow-growing, long-season vegetable belonging to the cabbage family.
In the proper season of the year, it can be grown with fair success in most areas of the country. In mild areas, or where
there is deep snow cover, the sprouts may overwinter.
The "sprouts" (small heads that resemble miniature cabbages)
are produced in the leaf axils, starting at the base of the stem and working upward. Sprouts improve in quality and grow best
during cool or even lightly frosty weather. Brussels sprouts require a long growing period, though newer hybrids have greatly
reduced this requirement. In all but the most northern states, summers are usually too warm for completely satisfactory production
from spring plantings. Plants set out in late spring to early summer grow satisfactorily and mature high-quality sprouts when
the fall weather begins to cool.
