Brussel Sprout ‘Red Bull’ is a specialist sprout variety from Europe, it offers smaller yields of dark red sprouts, but has a milder, delicate, nuttier flavour than standard green types.
The red colour is enhanced with the first light frosts and develops great intensity after a hard frost. It is retained when the sprouts are cooked, steamed or microwaved.

Red Bull matures over a long period and the sprouts remain in good condition for many weeks. Harvest November through to January from a spring sowing. The resulting sprouts are small and tasty, and look gorgeous in the pan and on the plate.
