Brussels sprouts consist of light to dark green florets with very tightly closed leaves.

Cultivation & harvest
The special form of vegetable cabbage requires a lot of nutrients in cultivation. For this reason, Brussels sprouts feel very well on heavy, humus, loamy soils. The cultivation of the winter vegetable succeeds in semi-shady but also sunny locations.
The florets have an intense, aromatic flavour and are very good in soups, stews, bakes or simply as an accompaniment to meals.
They keep for several days in the crisper drawer of the fridge.
