BRUSSEL SPROUTS SEEDS
Brussels Sprouts were a popular vegetable in Belgium, hence the name. They are delicious if grown and cooked correctly – see Brussels sprouts recipes and are an excellent source of vitamins C and D and dietary fibre. They also contain glucosinolates – compounds which may help to prevent cancer. Brussels Sprouts are a member of the brassica family so club root may be a problem if you have it on your plot.
They are a slow growing vegetable, and take 26 to 31 weeks to reach maturity. They can be picked fresh from September until February.
