Heirloom brussels sprouts are a powerhouse of nutrients, offering a wealth of health benefits that make them a must-have in any diet. Packed with vitamins C and K, these vegetables contribute to healthy skin, immune system function, and bone health. They are also high in fiber, which promotes digestive wellness and can help in maintaining a healthy weight.
An insect pollinated biennial, brussels sprouts will cross with all members of Brassica family. Isolation distances of ½ mile are necessary for purity. Seedpods must reach maturity on the mother plant. When pods are dry and brown, they can be harvested and broken open.
Begin by searching for firm, green sprouts about the size of a large marble, approximately 1 to 2 inches in diameter. To harvest, twist the sprout away from the stalk or cut it off with a sharp knife, starting from the bottom of the stalk and working your way up. This method encourages the plant to continue producing more sprouts upward.
