A result of 15 years of British breeding; a cross between the Kale and Brussels Sprouts species producing 'rosettes' of loose frilly edged buttons on a long stalk, in purples, greens and bicoloured leaves. Also known as 'Kalettes'. However, the flavour and nutritional content of Brassica Petit Posy™ is akin to spring greens rather than Brussels sprouts - perfect for those who don't enjoy sprouts! Stands in condition throughout the winter, very winter hardy. The loose buttons are easy to pick off the stems and are perfect for adding to stir fries, serving steamed or microwaved and make very nutritious winter greens. One seed packet could produce enough crop to last up to five months supply.

Great new vegetable 2017-03-22
We grew these for the first time last year and were very impressed. Easy to grow, and giving a huge crop, which we preferred to regular sprouts - better flavour and quicker to cook (just a few minutes steaming). Be warned, though, they grow to 6 feet high and will need staking. However the crop is huge because the rosettes form all they way up the stem. Recommended.
