The Long Island variety is the most popular for home gardeners and has been a favorite since the 1890s. The stalks grow to about 2 feet, and this heirloom plant can produce up to 100 sprouts over an extended harvest season! The heads are closely set on the stalks, develop a rich, dark green color, and grow up to 2 inches in diameter. They’re ideal for fresh cooking, and they freeze well, too.

Characteristics:

  • Early-Midseason
  • Days to maturity: 90 to 115
  • High yield over time
  • Tender and sweet
  • Sprout heads 1 1/2 to 2 inches
  • Freezes well
