Flower Sprout Petit Posy is an interesting combination of Brussels sprout and kale, producing attractive 'kale florets' on a tall sprout stalk. This variety is extremely winter hardy and with a similar cropping calendar to sprouts, the harvest window stretches from October to early March from mid-March sowings.
The taste is milder and sweeter than a Brussels Sprout with a good texture. It is an ideal winter vegetable and can be cooked in a variety of ways, steamed, stir-fried or microwaved.
Petit Posy is a selection of 3 different Flower Sprout varieties, including bi-colour, red and green colour forms. Quantities of each colour may vary.
