Brussel Sprout

Quantity in Stock:
Product Code: 1009

Grown out on field scale, this landrace really held its own on the windy waterlogged hilltop. The plants that didn’t thrive were rogued out – so the overall hardiness and vigour of the variety will hold true. These are mostly large plants with large sprouts, holding through the winter – though as with most landraces there is some variation.

Reviewer: Mark from Tallaght  
I grew these a few years ago and had them for Christmas dinner. Only had space left for 3 or 4 plants. So this year I decided to grow again and get a few more in. They were the nicest sprouts i've ever eaten. Nothing like what I've ever bought in the shops. Flavour was so much milder and so easy on the palate. The texture was so much lighter and not as soggy as the variety in the shops. The sprout itself was like a miniature cabbage rather than all the leaves closed up tight in a ball but were a real treat. Strongly recommend them. I will try get another review after this years crop to see if they are the same as how I remember them.
The key I found is the time you plant them out from seedlings. If you are even a little too late you will get no sprouts so be careful to plant out exactly when the label says. Probably July is a good time or even early August but timing is everything.
