Igor Organic Brussels sprout seeds are CERTIFIED ORGANIC! A medium-late, high yielding variety with vigorous growth to around 80cm (32") tall. The sprouts are dark green, firm, smooth, and uniform from the top to bottom on the stem. Igor stands up really well against frost, so the harvest period is extended from November to the end of January from May/June plantings. Avoid transplanting Brussels sprouts into high nitrogen soils in order to avoid loose sprouts. A balanced, fertile soil will ensure nice tightly packed sprouts that will have increased sugar content after frost, so the flavour really improves. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Fresh Brussels sprouts are a superb fall and winter treat. Like broccoli, these little “cabbages” are full of beta-carotene, vitamin C, and fibre. And after frost, they become sweet, as the plants create sugar for antifreeze. Keep your plants moist and well-mulched during the heat of summer, to ensure your supply of Brussels sprouts until the holidays. These big top-heavy plants are some of the easiest brassicas to grow. You should be able to expect a large harvest from only 4 or 5 plants. Follow along this handy How to Grow Brussels Sprouts and grow mini cabbages this season.
