What are the pros? Can grow in cooler weather

What are the cons? Never formed edible heads

Review:

I planted these in September - it's now December 30th and they still haven't formed heads. They germinated fast but haven't done much since. We've had a very cold & wet fall/winter for Oregon so maybe that has something to do with it but I thought for sure I'd be serving this for Thanksgiving dinner. I haven't put much effort into growing them because we have had so much rain. I haven't yanked them - waiting to see if they take off in ~February. In the meantime, I'm single handedly keeping the slugs fed over the winter.

Review:

This is the second year I am attempting to grow Catskill brussel sprouts. The first year the buds opened up, perhaps due to the early heat here in Arizona. However other gardening friends had no issues with their brussel sprouts out here. This year, I still do not even see the formation of buds. It is too late to replant out here, because we get hot so early, but I will be trying the red rubine and gronginger next year.

Review:

We couldn't wait for the brussels since we jus had to try the leaves. They were too perfect! That was a mistake since we couldn't stop. These plants have such beautiful, sweet, thick leaves that were simply amazing saut?ed with onions garlic..sometimes raisins, nuts and/or ginger sesami oil. The combinations were endless. Very hardy plants and they grew beautifully. I bet the actual sprouts would have been super tasty too. Planted again this winter just for the greens :)

Review:

Ending up planting these a bit later than I should have last year (which heated stunted them initially) but still got a decent sized late harvest. Trimmed off the flowers/pods going into winter and most of the plants overwintered (took heavy frost damage in a unusually mild 5b winter but recovered in spring) to produce for another full season. Albeit more branched out in growth pattern and less of the leaves forming heads (albeit still fully edible even loose leaved). Easy to grow and delicious. No pests really seemed to bother these now two year old plants.
