Brodie F1 Brussels sprout

We tried these for the first time as they were recommended to us for their sweet taste.They have been picked whilst small to improve the flavour and reduce cooking time.
We have eaten the small amount of Brussel tops but sadly the snails on the allotment plot had most of them.
The effort to net them was worthwhile to keep the large white butterflies off, so all in all a successful but small crop with beneficial health properties.


  1. Those pesky slugs spoil everything don’t they?

  2. well in this case it was snails more than slugs I am not keen to use pellets or other means because of my plot neighbours pond and frogs.
