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? Beautiful color, unusual look

What are the cons? Few sprouts, small sprouts

Review:

I have no trouble growing cole crops here, especially green Brussel sprouts. RedRubine was not a success. I started six seeds; three sprouted. When I set the 6-inch plants out, one succumbed immediately, and a second one was ripped up by a vole. The remaining plant grew very tall and lanky; next year I will stake each plant right when I plant it out. It didn’t seem to be as bothered by cabbage butterflies, and the deer avoided it, a miracle in itself. It just seemed to focus its energy on growing tall; I harvested six sprouts in all. I’m going to try it again, just because it is so unusual looking and I really want to harvest purple brussels sprouts one day! I also think next year I will try nipping out the central growing tip a bit earlier in the season . We used the leaves in a Juice, they make a pretty strong - tasting addition to juices so beware! Red Rubine Is not for the inexperienced, but it is for the person who likes a challenge!

Review:

I juiced these with nutrients after reading reviews. I was hoping the boost would aid in production. All the sprouts were about 1cm in diameter by the October frost.

What are the pros? Quick sprouting

What are the cons? Slow growing, water sensitive

Review:

The plants sprouted quickly in doors in early April and then moved into the outdoor garden in late May. Once placed outdoors the plants grew very slowly and ultimately were dead by the beginning of July. We had a lot of rain in the early part of the summer and a moderately warm June with limited water. The plants appeared to need very dry soil and soil that isn't rich. We grew them in a big field on the farm and were disappointed. I doubt we'll try growing them again.

Started these indoors in March, transplanted them in May and they never produced. The plants grew very slowly. Disappointing.

Review:

I've grown these the last two summers. The first summer I had a lot of other projects going on so overall the garden was a bit neglected by my standards so I thought that may have been the problem. I got 0 sprouts of off about half a dozen plants so I thought I'd try again this past summer. Put a lot of effort and maintenance into the entire garden this year, I do all organic, and overall it was a resounding success....except for these. They grew beautiful, tall plants just like my other sprouts that were in the same bed. Trouble is off of I think 9 plants this year I probably got that many, maybe a dozen, very small sprouts. The Long Islands next to them produced like crazy. I live in Alaska, pretty much a brassica eutopia as far as weather is concerned so that's not the issue. The leftover seeds will be going in the trash as I can't even bring myself to give them away to someone else to try. Not sure what the deal is with these but I seem to not be alone in having issues.
