Roodnerf Brussels Spr...
Hard-to-find variety known for its high quality.
Brussels Sprouts can be tricky but Roodnerf is highly-rated for easy cultivation and excellent heading.
Very cold-hardy, with sweetest flavor after some frost. Late variety to see you through the winter. Slower-growing and less fussy about soil. Tall, best to stake it.
BOTANICAL NAME: Br. Oleracea v. gemmifera
GROWING INSTRUCTIONS:Requires long season and produces best in cool weather. Plant about 4 months before fall frost, which improves flavors and vitamins. Shallow rooted and susceptible to diseases in early stages; ensure there is good air circulation, and do not cultivate around roots. Needs adequate calcium. As sprouts begin to touch, remove lower leaves carefully and pinch tops to encourage side growth. Harvest sprouts from the bottom up. Heavy plants may need staking, especially in wind.
