Brussels Sprouts Flower Sprout Petit Posy 30 seeds (VEG1035)
Petit Posy flower sprouts a cross between Kale and Brussel Sprout, brand new F1 vegetable developed by a UK breeder using traditional hybridization techniques. The plant habit is similar to Brussels Sprouts, a tall stem with loose button rosettes forming all the way up to a frilly-leaved top. Extremely winter hardy and with a similar cropping calendar to sprouts the harvest window stretches from October to early March from mid-March sowings, harvest by picking the loose frilly button rosettes from the stem. The taste is milder and sweeter than a Brussels Sprout with a good texture. It is an ideal winter vegetable and can be steamed, stir-fried or microwaved. Sow from early spring to June.
