An exciting NEW Vegetable variety: The Brussels Flower Sprout!

We are constantly striving to bring you the best in vegetable breeding and when we first saw the exciting new variety Brussels 'Flower Sprout' at trials we knew then that we had to have it!

Brussels 'Flower Sprout' has took 10 years to develop and for enough seed to be available to offer to our customers.

It has been bred by crossing curly kale with brussels sprout to create a brand new vegetable.

It has a sprout-like plant habit, a tall stem with little purple and green rosettes (looking like miniature cabbages) forming all the way up to a frilly-leaved top. The purple colour intensifies as the weather turns colder.

Brussels 'Flower Sprout' is extremely winter-hardy, with a similar cropping time to sprouts but with a flavour more like spring greens.

The loose buttons are easy to pick and is an ideal winter vegetable, it can be steamed, stir-fried or microwaved.

Features

  • F1 Hybrids are crossed varieties that are exceptionally vigorous and longer lasting
  • Will flower well in full sun
