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.

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.

I started these in September in good soil and good conditions. Its January and they're still 6 inches or so. Very far from producing anything. Huge disappointment but still very beautiful.

What are the pros? Healthy edible purple leaves

What are the cons? No sprouts

Review:

Started Indoors, germinated fast and easy typical for brassicas. Planted out in organic Missouri soil with dolomite lime. Protected from pest with clear UV treated mosquito net. Plants made beautiful midsize purple foliage. I harvested some plants like kale. Full long season, plenty of moisture (63" this year), no disease or pest. No sprouts by first frost. Not sure if it was missing a nutrient, sun or too hot, but I would guess too hot having about 4 months in upper 90s I would not grow again for sprouts unless someone could advise what these plants like. But I would grow them as a purple flat leaf kale. Purples do tend to be smaller than greens, but also more cold hardy. I would guess these do better farther north with cooler summer.

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.
