A hard-to-find heirloom variety that really is colorful in cool late fall weather. Easily one of the most exciting additions to our catalog this year, red Brussels sprouts stand out in the garden and on the plate. The stunning purple red sprouts are filled with antioxidants. These have a really nice, sweet flavor when grown in cool weather.

What are the pros? Easy to get germinated

What are the cons? Extremely slow maturing

Review:

I used the same style of compost as in my previous review. I read what the other reviewer had stated about researching the seeds/plants and had a great outcome. I took their advice. I researched it in hopes of finding something I had done wrong. Basically there was nothing listed that really differed from when I had grown them the previous year. Last year I only planted red rubine, but due to never getting them higher than my mid calf, I planted catskill along with them this year. Catskill and red rubine are planted in the same section, get treated equally. I still use organic pest control. They are exposed to the same elements. The catskill is above my waist, numerous sprouts on each plant, and thriving excellently. The red rubine is almost mid calf, no sprouts, and looks as healthy as the catskill, just very slow at growing. I havent given up on them yet. I will be planting catskill every year and rely on them solely for production and hope for the red rubine produces for me.

What are the pros? Plants are beautiful

What are the cons? Still growing

Review:

I planted these in late September, and San Diego has experienced warm weather ever since. These plants are only about 6 inches tall. Unlike the other reviewer, every single one popped up. I started them straight into a great soil in the backyard. Really glad I read their growing cycle again this morning, learning that this is normal and they will eventually produce. I’m excited to see where these go. But I will be planting more in Spring to see how they do in the hot summer.

What are the pros? Colorful

What are the cons? Slow growing, never produced

Review:

I planted inside 40 seeds. Out of the 40, 23 germinated and began growing. The growing was extremely slow. It was in organic growing soil with led grow lighting. Three months later when they reached a height of 6 inches (yes it took 12 wks before they were 6 inches in height, stalks were not very thick) they were transplanted outside in a raised garden with organic soil/compost (60/40). 21 survived the transplant. They received feed and water. We treated the plants organically for bugs and placed a net over the entire raised garden. 16 survived the bug infestation, 2 survived the bug infestation but were deeply wounded. At then end of the growing season they were almost half way up my calf (yes I said calf). The stalk did get thicker, but it grew painfully slow. They never produced. I sent two friends these seeds (MI, OH), both complained about the same issues of slow growing and not producing at all. I am going try again. Perhaps planting earlier will help....... Will update later.
