Brussel Sprout - Long Island Improved -Brassica oleracea

Plant produces very high yields of round dark green flavorful Brussels Sprouts. This variety is great for freezing.

Soil & Water: Start spring seedlings 4-5 weeks before transplanting. Start fall transplants 2-3 months before first frost. Transplant out to the garden when 3” tall at least 90 days before your first frost in midsummer. Needs cool temperatures to head properly – will bolt in heat. Keeping soil evenly moist is a must for a healthy crop.

Planting & Growing: The sprouts develop from the lowest to the highest. So once the nibs of the sprouts are visible, remove the lowermost 6-8 leaves to allow them to develop and continue up the plant each week or two, leaving only the uppermost leaves intact to continue feeding the plant.

Harvesting & Storage: About 3 weeks before harvest, remove the top of the plant to speed completion of sprout development along the stem area. When the sprouts have reach a fullness (1"-2") harvest by cutting or snapping off the stem. Do not allow them to become "overblown" as you they can lose flavor and texture.
