- SPEEDIA BRUSSEL SPROUTS – matures ~78 days from transplant, Hybrid
Finally! A Brussel Sprouts variety we feel confident about growing for you. This superior variety has vigorous, extra sturdy stalks 30-36” tall that won’t tip over or tilt, and Speedia’s early-maturing, large to very-large sprouts are bountiful and tasty. Perhaps best of all, its more open foliage helps keep the end-of-summer aphid population low. Grow in very fertile soil, 1 plant per square yard. Lop tops off plants in early Sept. to direct the plant’s energy into sprout development. Plants are very cold-hardy and sprout flavor sweetens after frost.
