Brussels Sprouts Seeds - Rubine

Brassica oleracea var. gemmifera

“Red Rubine’ is a Brussels Sprout with a difference, it’s red/purple in colour. This variety grows to around 90cm (3’) tall and has deep purple foliage. This makes ‘Red Rubine’ very ornamental in the veg garden. The sprouts are the size of walnuts, with a nutty/sprout flavour and they keep their red colour when cooked. I like to roast my sprouts, they go crispy skinned and velvety in the middle. Perfect to add interest to your christmas dinner. This variety is extremely frost hardy and will stand well through the winter. Don’t forget that ‘Red Rubine’ sprout ‘tops’ are a really tasty veg in their own right.”

Starting off indoors, sow onto moist well-drained seed compost. Cover with compost and keep at around 10-15°C (50-59°F). Transplant resulting seedlings when large enough to handle into 9cm (3½") pots and harden off for 2-3 weeks before planting out at 60cm (24") spacing. Can be sown directly from April. Sow 10mm (1/3") deep into a warm, moist, weed-free seedbed. Cover with soil. When the seedlings have 2 true leaves, thin to 10cm (4") apart. Cover with cloches or fleece if the weather is cold. When the danger of frost has passed move to final spacings of 60cm (24").
 

Ideal for beds and borders. Prefers full sun or partial shade.
