HEIRLOOM BRUSSEL SPROUT Long Island Improved -- 1000 Seeds

100 days. (B. oleracea) The standard open-pollinated variety since the 1890's. Heavy yields of delicious sprouts.

The Brussels sprout is a cultivar of wild cabbage grown for its edible buds. The leafy green vegetables are typically 2.5–4 cm (0.98–1.6 in) in diameter and look like miniature cabbages.

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS ARE INCLUDED. Germination depeds upon growing conditions.

NUTRIONAL VALUE: Brussels sprouts, as with broccoli and other brassicas, contains sulforaphane, a chemical believed to have potent anticancer properties. Although boiling reduces the level of the anticancer compounds, steaming, microwaving, and stir frying does not result in significant loss.  Brussels sprouts and other brassicas are also a source of indole-3-carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells.
