Growing Brussels Sprouts
Brussels Sprouts plants are initially started as seedlings prior to being planted in the field. Once planted, Brussels Sprout plants range anywhere from 110 to 130 days to produce a marketable sprout.
The individual sprouts form on the stalk of the plant from bottom to top. The sprouts at the bottom of the stalk mature earlier than the middle and top, therefore we harvest each stalk two to three times.
Brussels Sprouts are hand harvested. When mature, each sprout is plucked from the stalk by our employees and packed into cartons. Once packed, we cool the sprouts down to 33-34 °F and ship them out to be enjoyed.
