Description

This brussels sprouts variety has a mild and sweet taste, and the small cabbage heads are tinted with lovely shades of purple. As the weather gets colder in autumn, the sprouts and foliage of the Red Ball variety develop an ever more intense red
color.

Package with 50 Red Ball brussels sprouts seeds

Growing instructions

Brussels sprouts should be pre-cultivated indoors from mid-April to early May. The seedlings can then be planted out outdoors after the last freezing nights. The distance between the individual Brussels sprouts plants should be about 50 cm. Must not be fertilized too much in order to achieve a good taste. The sprouts taste best after they have been exposed to frost.
