description for "Brussels Sprouts: Brassica oleracea 'Long Island Improved'"

Pick almost any season to plant and enjoy this brussel sprout. Whether its Spring, Summer or Fall, it won't deter its yields. This semi-dwarf plant prefers the cooler temperatures and produces small 2" sprouts any of the above seasons. A great choice for freezing, cooking or eaten fresh. Maturity in 90-100 days.
