Brussels sprouts are a leafy green vegetable belonging to the brassica family 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. Although the taste of different varieties vary somewhat, good home grown brussel sprouts have a sweet nutty flavor.
