Long Island Improved
If you love the flavor of Brussels Sprout then this is the variety for you! First written about in 1752, this variety is a real taste experience. Produces large 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 inch sprouts closely packed on the stem of a 24 inch plant. Excellent eating quality and uniformity! Heavily set with firm sprouts over a long season! Good freezer storage plant.
Try them roasted with other vegetables, a hearty meat, or sausage. They can even be chopped finely and used raw in salads or in coleslaw.
