The hybrid cross between Russian Red Kale and Brussels Sprouts, KALE SPROUTS have a slightly nutty and sweet peppery flavor with a crisp fresh texture. The florets grow on a stalk, just like Brussels sprouts.
British vegetable seed house, Tozer Seeds, took 15 years to develop this new vegetable in a natural process where the pollen of one species is used to fertilize the flower of the other. The result is a charming vegetable with silvery-green to blue-gray leaves and purple veins.
It cooks much faster than Brussels sprouts, so it is terrific for stir-frying. Its petite leaves are hearty, so they keep their shape to make a pretty floral presentation. Kale Sprouts can also be found marketed as Lollipop Kale, Lollipop Sprouts, BrusselKale, Kalettes, and Flower Sprouts.
