Brussel Sprout Maximus is a relatively early variety that can also be sown later for mid-season and pre-Christmas harvest.
Plants are of medium vigour, and produce a high yield of round, smooth, very dense buttons which are well spaced on the stalk. Sprouts are sweet and well flavoured.
This variety is highly regarded for its reliability and shows tolerance of ring spot, powdery mildew and white blister.
