This variety will grow well in most regions of the United States but prefers a long, cool summer season
Yield 50-100 sprouts over a season
Sprouts grow to 1.5 inches
Sweet flavor when harvested after frost
80-115 days from transplant
A single stalk of this variety can bear 50-100 dark-green Brussels sprouts (florets) over an extended period. Compact plants produce sturdy spikes with edible florets that mature from the bottom up and take on sweeter tones after a light frost. Toward the end of the growing season, cut off the top 4-6 inches of the plant to force it to put it's energy into the existing sprouts; the remaining sprouts should mature in 3-6 weeks. Introduced in the 1890s, this historic variety was once the most important commercial sprout in the United States. Brussels sprouts mature 80-115 days from transplant.
Instructions: In cool climates, sow seeds indoors early, 4-6 weeks before the last frost. In warmer climates, Brussels sprouts can be direct sown for a spring harvest. Plant ¼" deep. A slow-growing, long-season vegetable that requires an even supply of water, Brussels sprouts also survive frost and light snowfalls.
