Brussel Sprouts

Notes: Favoured for its compact size and tightly spaced leaves and sprouts. Harvest after a frost for the sweetest flavour. Best cooked in a pot with the lid off. Sweet and tasty! In warmer climates, if left to grow the second year, they produce an explosion of beautiful yellow flowers in early Spring. This will encourage the early pollinators in your garden to stay all season so we recommend leaving a few stalks in the ground to see this stunning display. The flowers then turn to seed pods, which look like a cluster of tiny bean pods. Let just a few dry on the plant and harvest when the pod is browned off. Just a few pods will be sufficient to restock your seed collection for free. If you do collect for seed it is important that only one type of brassica is in bloom at the same time. This is especially true for small garden spaces.

Instructions: Direct Sow 1 mm deep. Germination is 10 to 18 days. Put out transplants 90 days before the first frost date. Produces a load of tasty sprouts on sturdy stems that do not require staking. Packed with flavour and sweetness improve with a light frost. Excellent growing in cooler climates. A traditional winter veggie.

History: Although Brussel Sprouts can be traced back as far as the Roman era, it was not until 1587 that they were first mentioned in a text. In 1812 Thomas Jefferson is said to have introduced Brussel Sprouts to North America.

Medicinal: Brussels sprouts are a great source of vitamins A, C, and K. They contain iron, fibre, potassium, and B vitamins, too
