Franklin Brussel Sprouts
These small, 1-in. (2 (cm) sprouts look like miniature heads of cabbage, and are tasty when steamed just to the point of tenderness or enjoyed raw. Gardeners should note that their flavor is improved by a few light frosts. Grow Franklin as a Fall crop in the North and as a Fall and Winter crop in frost-free areas. The tall plants have less woody stalks than other varieties, so whole stem harvest is possible.
