Brussel Sprouts Long Island
Home-grown Brussels sprouts are sweet, nutty, and buttery – never strong-flavored. It is a real satisfaction to pick and enjoy them in late fall when the rest of the summer garden is finished.

Gardener's Notes: Plant early/mid-summer for fall harvest. Sow 3 inches apart in rich, well-amended soil. Thin established seedlings to 1.5 feet apart as plants grow tall and large. Fertilize monthly. Control caterpillars with non-toxic B.T. Harvest in cool fall weather; light frost actually sweetens flavor. Pick when sprouts are solid and well filled-out starting from the bottom of stalks. Approximately 110 days to harvest. Plants 25 foot row.
