Brussels Sprouts are a vegetable similar to cabbages, and because of their look, people often refer to them as baby cabbages.
Grows best in a cool climate, as the taste changes significantly if grown in hot weather.
Pests & Diseases
Aphids and caterpillars including cabbage loopers can attack brussels sprouts.
Brussels sprouts can cross contaminate other cabbage related vegetables including cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and kale. Brussels sprouts seed in the second season, so you must overwinter them in moist sand in a cool dark place such as a root cellar or basement.
