Growing Calendar for Brussels Sprouts Seeds - Crispus
Delivery: 5-7 Working Days
Brussels Sprout 'Crispus' is a superb variety, being both vigorous with an excellent standing ability. The small, tight buttons are a lovely dark green with good flavour.
Our Brussels Sprout varieties have each been selected for their superb flavour. They're also an excellent source of vitamin C and are packed full of vitamin D, folic acid and are high in antioxidants.
To grow tightly packed sprouts, firm fertile soil is essential. Dig in plenty of well-rotted manure or compost as early as possible to give the soil the maximum time to settle.
Superb dark green sprouts, and club resistant.

Essential if your plot suffers from club root problems
An excellent sprout which produces (for me at any rate) huge dense sprouts which are great sliced in a stir fry. Keeps well but as we are a sprout loving family I haven't tested the staying power to the limit.
