Brussels Sprouts Albarus F1
Brussels Sprouts Albarus F1 is a medium maturing late season variety suited to the Tasmanian climate. It produces very firm, very uniform and attractive medium sized sprouts that hold well on the stalk and have that classic sprout flavour. Ensure you add a stake when planting to support the plant when it grows.
Sow late November to early January for highest yields as this allows ample time for the plant to grow taller and thus a longer stem for more sprouts!
Sow: late November to February (cool climate)
Spacing: plants 45 to 60cm, rows 70cm.
Although native to the Mediterranean region with other cabbage species, brussels sprouts first appeared in northern Europe during the 5th century, later being cultivated in the 13th century near Brussels, Belgium, from which they derived their name.
Germination: Optimal Soil temperature is 19 to 24 C (around 5-10 days to germination)
