BRUSSELS SPROUTS FACT SHEETS

Long Island

Tall Type

Plants yield 50-100 dark green 1½ inch sprouts over an extended period.  Transplant in late fall, as they require cool temperatures to develop firm, crunchy sprouts. Warm weather causes individual sprouts to be soft and open rather than solid and tightly packed. An ideal average temperature is around 58–60°F.
