This veggie is the tallest relative of other cole crops such as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and kale! Luckily, brussels sprouts like cool weather so they are at home here in Minnesota. This low temperature is important for their maturity, flavor, and quality. Brussels sprouts grow for most of the summer and are harvested after a frost later in the year. Brussels sprouts are a good source of vitamin A, C, K, B6, potassium, and manganese. This veggie is delicious in a variety of ways such as steamed, boiled, roasted, or even sautéd.
