Open-pollinated Brussels sprouts
have become endangered heirlooms
We have the best selection of any company we know.
Requires long growing season and tastes best when matured in cool weather.
Just before your first frost, top the plants to redirect growth to the sprouts. When a bud starts to bulge from stem, remove the leaf below it. Harvest when 1" across, until December or all-winter in milder climates. Frost sweetens flavor, adds vitamins.
They need fertility, cool moist weather, and staking in windy sites.
