Mandy's Greenhouses / Brussel Sprouts
Available as Seed only! Packets will be $1.50. Once a var. is marked as “N/A”, no more will be offered.
- Catskills – developed by Arthur White of Arkport, NY in 1941. A hardy dwarf form. Plants produce tasty, uniform sprouts. Grow plants in relatively cool soil. Very cold and extreme heat will stunt them. Could perhaps grow better as a fall crop. 75-85 days
- Long Island - an old reliable variety, growing to sometimes 3 to 4 ½ ft. tall. Prefers cold weather, so start climatizing early. When dark green, tight, round sprouts form, (late summer to early fall…) remove lower leaves to encourage more production. Great for freezing. Place in fertile…peat or compost soils. 80-100 days
- Rubin – Open pollinated…this one is listed as a heirloom! Where was it hiding? Grows only from 20-30″ tall. The gorgeous violet/rose/purple sprouts tuck themselves in nicely into violet/purple stems. The whole works is accented with blue/green/purple huge leaves. Harvest sprouts when they are only about 1″ to 1 1/2″ wide. What a show stopper! 75-80 days N/A
