Rubine Brussels Sprouts

If you’d like to grow Brussels sprouts with a little color more than green, the Rubine variety is as ornamental as it is tasty! This plant gives you a high yield of purplish-red sprouts between 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter. They keep their vibrant color even when you cook them. This is a plant you could grow alongside flowers for a decorative—and productive—border.

Characteristics:

  • Early-Midseason
  • Days to maturity: 85
  • Sprouts 1 1/2 to 2 inches
  • Retains its color even when cooked
  • Ornamental enough to use as a border
