Long Island 90 days. Approx. 110 Seeds/Pkg. The Brussels sprout is a cool season crop, belonging to the cabbage family, and closely related to cauliflower, broccoli, kale, collards, etc. Like cauliflower, it thrives best in a cool humid climate, thus commercial production of this crop is concentrated in the "fog-belt" of California with limited production in the Long Island, New York area. For the home gardener, these plants thrive in full sun, and produce plenty of buds. Four plants filled a brown grocery sack here in NY. The edible portion of this crop is the "bud" or small cabbage-like head which grows in the axils of each leaf. Occasionally the tops are used as greens.
