Brussels Sprouts - Nautic - Brassica oleracea var. gemmifera
Biennial F1 Hybrid. Nautic is a reliable, long-standing hybrid with great disease resistance. The tightly wrapped sprouts average 1" with wide spacing along the stem limiting the spread of disease and making them easy to harvest.
Soil and Water: Brussels sprouts require fertile soil high in organic matter and nitrogen. They preform best with a pH of 6.5 and consistent moisture.
Planting and Growing: Best grown as a fall crop so set out transplants about 100 before the first frost. Sow in flats 4-5 weeks before transplant.
Harvesting and Storage: Pick the sprouts when they are about an inch in size. The lowermost sprouts mature first.
