Long Island Improved Brussel Sprouts (Brassica oleracea)
The semi-dwarf plants are stocky, with leaves that are closely spaced, so the small, self-supporting stems have plenty of tasty sprouts. This was once one of the most important commercial varieties, having been introduced at the end of the nineteenth century. It's always a fantastic option today.
