Description
This variety of historic Brussels sprouts is thought to have been introduced in the 1890s and was once the most important commercial sprout variety in the United States.

The first written reference to Brussels sprouts as we now know them dates to the late 1500s, but they may have been growing in Belgium even earlier than that. French settlers may have brought the seeds to the United States in the 18th century but commercial production of the crop didn’t take off until the 1920s in California’s Central Coast.

This variety works for Steaming Boiling Baking Soup Freezing!

Brussels sprouts are sweetest when they are small heads. Sauté them with butter and shallots or roast them with bacon then top with a maple and cider vinegar dressing.

You can add your sprouts to casseroles, gratins, and soups. Try tossing them in a warm winter greens salad with pistachios and pancetta.

SEEDS EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.

Grow Notes
Plant in full or part sun, well-draining, compost rich soils. Add agricultural lime if pH is alkaline.

Brussels Sprouts are a cool season crop that will bolt in hot weather, so plant in late Summer and Autumn for a Winter or Spring harvest. Do not transplant seedlings or sow seeds outside in hot temperatures.

Once sprouts start appearing it is time to remove the leaves from the lower part of the plant, this reduces disease and helps air flow while directing all growing energy into the buds. Pick sprouts as they develop. Best flavour is developed after at least one frost.

Protect from aphids and caterpillars with netting or sprays, water roots not the leaves to prevent diseases.

Sow
Sow direct or raise as seedlings. Plant seeds at a depth of 7mm in moist soil, 70cm apart in 100cm spaced rows.

Keep soil moist but never wet or dry.

Transplant seedlings to the garden once they have their first true leaves and are large enough to handle.

Germination
7-14 days at 7-25°C

Maturity
85-95 days. Usually grown as an Annual but is considered a hardy Biennial.
