Brussel Sprouts



Great in Cool Weather, Excellent Yield

Brassica oleracea var.gemmifera

Flavor is improved if picked after frost. Delicious and nutritious. Pick lowest sprouts, each time removing accompanying leaves but not top foliage. Harvest 95-105 days after transplanting. Cool season vegetable, so plant to mature during cool weather. Delicious steamed, stir-fried or roasted.

Placement: Do not plant where any of the cabbage family grew last year.

Care: Full sun. Plant in well-drained, loamy soil rich in organic matter. Keep evenly moist. Plant 18-24” apart in rows 30-36” apart.
