Net Wt. 1.3g (Approx. 180 to 190 seeds)
An open pollinated, heirloom variety developed in the 1890's. A dwarf variety that produces an abundance of large, firm, flavorful dark green sprouts on compact plants that are of the highest quality but not uniform in size as those produced hybrid varieties. Before hybrids came into existance this variety was the main variety used by both home gardeners and commercial growers. Brussels sprout seed must be started indoors and transplanted to the garden to mature sprouts in Alaska. The sprouts have a mild cabbage-like flavor but are more tender and tasty than cabbage. Late maturing and may not mature sprouts in some cooler areas of Alaska.
