Delicious. No garden is complete without Brussel Sprouts. Catskill is a wonderful heirloom variety with good old-fashioned taste and prolific production of sprouts. Brussels sprouts are a leafy green vegetable belonging to the brassica family The brussel sprout plant has a thick stalk that can grow up to 3 feet (1M) tall. The leaves are dark green, or redish purple in some varieties, have a rounded shape and grow in whorls up the stem. The edible portion of the plant is the sprouts. They grow on the stalk of the plant, in the leaf axils (between each set of leaves), maturing from the base of the stem 1st and continue up the stem. Once picked from the stalk no further sprout will grow from that position. A single plant may produce 80-100 sprouts or roughly 2-3 lb (approx 1-1 1/2 kg) of sprouts. Although the taste of different varieties vary somewhat, good home grown brussel sprouts have a sweet nutty flavor. Catskill' produces outsize yields of extra-large, deep green 2"-round sprouts which flank the super-strong stalks. Introduced in 1941, this flavorful long-time favorite is a good choice for freezing.
