Brussels Sprouts 'Red Rubine' Aka Ruby

Buttons of burgundy-red nutty sprouts with lavender-blue leaves. These sprouts turn an intriguing caviar-black when cooked.

How to grow

Prefering a slightly alkaline soil, like other members of the cabbage family, prepare the ground with plenty of well rotted manure or compost. In windy gardens the plants will need to be staked as they become top heavy. Loosely formed sprouts are a sign of too much nitrogen. Best in frosty areas. Grow through summer for autumn and winter harvests. The spring flowering shoots can be eaten like broccoli and its top knot of leaves serves as a mini cabbage. Prone to attack by white cabbage butterfly - control with Dipel.
