This sprout regularly comes out top for flavour in supermarket taste panels, and that’s because it has a mild sweet taste - without that bitter or peppery flavour you often get. It has a good holding ability that means you can harvest them over a couple of months, and a good resistance to leaf and button disease. It’s also a good source of vitamin A, B and C.
- Growing Instructions:Sow seeds sparingly under cover into pots or seed trays of well-drained seed compost in spring. Pot on seedlings individually as they grow and gradually accustom to cooler temperatures before planting outside in May, spacing plants 60cm apart and firming in well. Keep well-watered, protect from slugs and net against pigeons.Successive plantings can extend the cropping period.
- Sow: March-April
- Harvest: November-December
- Approximate quantity: 50 seeds.
