General Information: 

Brussels sprouts, scientifically known as Brassica oleracea var. gemmifera, are a member of the cabbage family and are renowned for their distinctive taste and texture. These miniature cabbage-like vegetables are packed with essential nutrients, including vitamins C and K, fiber, and antioxidants.

Brussels sprouts thrive in well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Prepare the soil by removing any weeds and incorporating compost or well-rotted manure to improve its fertility and structure.  Space the plants 18-24 inches apart to allow for proper growth.

Brussels sprouts require consistent moisture to ensure optimal growth. Water the plants regularly, especially during hot, dry periods, and mulch around the base to retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Fertilize the plants with a balanced organic fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.

Protect your Brussels sprouts from common pests such as aphids, cabbage worms, and slugs by using organic pest control methods like handpicking or applying natural insecticides like Diatomaceous Earth. Monitor the plants regularly for signs of diseases such as clubroot or powdery mildew and take appropriate measures to prevent their spread.

When the Brussel Sprouts begin to form the leaves between the sprouts can be removed for better production .

Brussels sprouts are typically ready for harvest 90-120 days after transplanting. Start harvesting the sprouts from the bottom of the stalk when they reach a desirable size, usually around 1-2 inches in diameter. Twist or cut the sprouts off the stalk, leaving the upper leaves intact for continued growth.
