Description

These extra-fancy Dutch hybrid Brussels Sprouts are bred for especially great flavor and productivity. You’ll have heavy yields of solid, crunchy, bright green cylindrical sprouts. The two-foot plants are both disease and rot resistant and these consistently strong producers can easily withstand early frosts for extended harvesting as needed. Enjoy Hestia sprouts’ sweet, succulent flavor either quickly steamed or tossed in olive oil and roasted with whole garlic cloves and sliced apples and bacon.

While Renee's Garden seeds are not all certified organic, they do not sell treated or GMO seeds and have signed the "Safe Seed Pledge.”

Planting & Care

Planting:
To Start Early Indoors
Start seeds 4 or 5 weeks before last expected Spring frost and again in mid-Summer for a fall crop in mild winter areas. Sow seeds 1" apart in a container of seed starting mix, cover lightly, about 1/4" deep and keep evenly moist. Provide a strong light source. When seedlings are large enough to handle, gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions, then transplant 24" apart into very fertile, well-drained soil in full sun.

To Start Outdoors
In early Summer, plant seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Plant groups of 2 seeds 1/4" deep and 2' apart. Space rows 18" apart. Thin to 1 strong seedling per group so plants have room to mature and grow.

Growing: Brussels sprouts thrive in rich soil amended with lots of organic matter. Keep growing plants well watered and weeded. Feed at least monthly with an all-purpose fertilizer.

Harvest & Use: Mulch plants well and begin harvesting when sprouts are well filled out, but still tightly closed. Pick lowest sprouts on the elongated stem first, so higher sprouts will continue to grow. Mature Brussels sprouts will handle light frosts and cold weather actually sweetens their flavor.

Reviews

Best ever

Here in Southern California, where we never have frosts, Brussels sprouts never get to sweeten up. But Hestia was a revelation: sweet and flavorful. Easy to grow. Short, compact plants with full-size sprouts that easily detach from the stalk. I usually don\'t care for sprouts, but I grew them for my daughter\'s family. They were so good we ended up eating some ourselves.
