Brussels sprouts, raw

Common Name: Brussels sprouts



Brussels sprouts are a variety of cabbage. Their existence was first recorded in 1587, and they were apparently developed in the 15th century in the northern part of Europe that is now Belgium. Whether or not they originated in Brussels, they were cultivated there for centuries and rapidly spread from there to other countries. Brussels sprouts first became popular in Europe after World War I, when consumption of vegetables increased considerably, but they are still among the minor vegetables in the United States.

Brussels sprouts (named after Brussels, Belgium, where the vegetable was first popular) are hardy, slow-growing, long-season vegetables that belong to the cabbage family. They can grow successfully in Arkansas if planted very early in the spring.
