Long Island Improved Brussels Sprout produce compact dark green sprouts. They grow well in most of the U.S. They do prefer a long, cool summer season. When harvested after frost they boast a sweet flavor. Sprouts grow to 1 1/2”. Yield about 50-100 sprouts per season. 1g ~ 300 seeds

Brussels Sprouts are best planted as transplants. For fall harvest, start seed indoors 4 to 6 weeks before transplanting the garden. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 70-80 degrees. Place them in the garden 2 to 4 weeks before average last frost. As the sprouts on the main stem begin to enlarge, remove the lower leaves of the plant. Harvest sprouts as they become solid and about 1 to 2 inches in diameter. The lowest sprouts will mature first.
