  • Darkmar Brussels Sprouts
    NEW!

    Brussels Sprouts, Darkmar 21 (Organic)

    $3.50$12.50
    Brassica oleracea. Green. 180-260 days.

    One of the most reliable, easy-to-grow open pollinated Brussels sprout varieties out there. Firm, sweet, dark green sprouts form on plants that grow to 3 ½ ft. We trialed every open pollinated Brussels sprout we could find; Darkmar 21 was the obvious choice for mid-season because of its consistent large sprout production and vigor in the field. A classic Brussels sprout variety that is popular in the UK but not widely available in the US. Sow in April or May for sprouts in November through February. For optimal sprout production, pinch the growth tip off in late August. Originally selected in Bedfordshire, England. Aka, Bedford Darkmar 21.

  • Early Half Tall Brussels Sprouts
    NEW!

    Brussels Sprouts, Early Half Tall (Organic)

    $3.50$7.00
    Brassica oleracea. Green. 100-200 days.

    Forgot to sow your Brussels sprouts in spring? All is not lost! With Early Half Tall, you can sow in June and still get a crop of sprouts by autumn. For a good early rotation of this winter garden delight, sow in March or April – sprouts are harvestable as early as August. Nice, dense sprout formation on dwarf plants that grow to 2 ½ ft. Lower stature helps keep plants upright in windy conditions or in waterlogged soil. Early Half Tall is one of the few open pollinated varieties that has been well maintained since the introduction of hybrids.

  • Red Bull Brussels Sprouts

    Brussels Sprouts, Red Bull (Organic)

    $3.50$60.00
    Brassica oleracea. Red. 210-260 days.

    Vigorous 3’ plants form 1-2” sprouts in fall and winter when transplanted into the field May to early June. Sweet, nutty flavor especially after frost when the plants turn a deeper red. Sprouts stay red when cooked. In our opinion, one of the few good open pollinated red Brussels sprouts. Very hardy and far superior to Rubine, though there is some variability in plant color, sprout size and formation. Late to mature. When planted in May sprouts are ready for harvest December – February. Originally sourced from Tozer’s seed company in England, we thank Jeff and Carri at Pitchfork & Crow for their continued stewardship of this variety.

    Seed produced by Pitchfork & Crow in Lebanon, Oregon.
