Description

Organic Brussel sprouts: Selection Sativa. Brassica oleracea var. gemmifera.

This is a medium height variety so it’s decent for a windy spot. Frost hardy it’s ready from November onwards. Bred specially by Sativa.bio to maintain its flavour and growing habit.

How to grow:
You can direct sow into drills from May and thin out, or start in a nursery bed or modules and transplant into final position when the height of your hand, about 90 – 100cms apart into rows 75cms apart. Harvest from November to February.

Problem solving:
Keep slugs and pigeons off them especially when small. The cabbage butterflies will love them come August, so covering with enviromesh, or something like it will save you picking off many little caterpillars.

Favourite ways to eat them:
Lovely steamed for Christmas dinner, but finely sliced into a stir fry and they take on an amazing delicious nutty flavour. They’re great too, as you can harvest them successionally.

Cultural history:
Like other brassicas Brussels Sprouts begin sometime in the Roman empire, these becoming popular in Brussels, Belgium in the 16th century.

Avg contents:  0.5g (~100 seeds).
