Brussels Sprouts are the hardiest of the cabbage family, perfect for our high latitude climate. This heirloom variety, originating in the 1890’s, grows to 20 inches tall and bears a heavy crop of firm flavorful sprouts over 1 inch across.
Start seeds indoors about 5 months before first frost, or direct sow outside 4 months before first frost. Plant seeds 1/4” deep, and thin to about 18” apart. Start harvesting after first good frost for enhanced flavor and tenderness.
cold-hardy plants that can be harvested into winter; mark plants with stakes so you can find them in the snow!
trimming plant top at full height helps firmer heads form
