Brussels sprouts look like miniature dark-green cabbages and are, in fact, related to the cabbage. The sprouts range from 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter. As many as a hundred of these ball-like sprouts may grow in bunches from a single, long plant stalk that is usually between 2 and 4 feet in height. Brussels sprouts are similar to the cabbage in flavor but are
milder and have a denser texture.
.Among the common varieties of Brussels
sprouts are the Noisette and Bedford Fillbasket. The Rubine is a red-leafed variety; the Mallard, Captain Marvel, Prince Marvel, Montgomery, and Jade Cross are all hybrids. The Early Half Tal is another variety.
