Brussels Sprouts, Falstaff Purple
Mild, nutty flavor.
Slow-growing but utterly delicious.
125 days. There has never been a more beautiful brussels sprout than this deep purplish-red variety, and we would recommend it even if it weren’t also one of the most flavorful. But the fact is that these rosy sprouts are simply delicious, with a mild, nut-like flavor that appeals more to children than other brussels sprout varieties may.
Slow to mature, this plant intensifies its lovely color if exposed to a bit of frost, so can be left quite late in the season without damage. And when you cook the sprouts, they keep their rich purple tones!
