Brussel Sprouts

Brussels sprouts, form of cabbage, belonging to the mustard family Brassicaceae. Brussels sprouts usually are eaten cooked, and the small young sprouts have a more delicate flavour than older ones. The vegetable is a good source of dietary fibre, folic acid, manganese, and vitamins A, C, and K. A seedling stage and early development, the plant closely resembles the common cabbage, but the main stem grows to a height of 60 to 90 cm, and the axillary buds along the stem develop into small heads (sprouts) similar to heads of cabbage but measuring only 25 to 40 mm in diameter. Most varieties have green sprouts, but red-leaved varieties have also been developed. Though commonly grown as annuals, Brussels sprouts are biennial plants and will produce yellow flowers with four petals if kept for two seasons. Seeds are borne in silique fruits. The plant requires a mild cool climate and is harmed by hot weather. New varieties available next season
