Brussels sprouts grow slowly, but reward the gardener with a bountiful harvest.
Brussels sprouts are a winter vegetable, and an excellent source of vitamins A, C, B, minerals and protein. This biennial is cultivated as an annual plant.
In the first year of life in the axils of the leaves of Brussels sprouts in the fall, spherical, tight, closed buds are formed, similar to miniature cabbages. Flowering shoots appear from uncollected buds in the second year.
Brussels sprouts can withstand temperatures down to -12°C. Moreover, the cold contributes to an increase in the sugar content of sprouts, which has a positive effect on their taste.
Moderately compacted soil with a high nutrient content is ideal for highly soil-depleting cabbages.
In order to prevent the disease of cabbage clubroot, lime should be mixed into the soil.
Cabbage should not be grown on soils with high nitrogen content.
