Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Long Island Improved Brussel Sprout Seeds (85-115 days) Originating around the 1890s Long Island Improved is still the most popular variety even though it is sometimes mistaken for the "Catskill" strain developed by Arthur White of Arkport, NY in 1941.
Long Island Improved is a much older variety even though the two are similar.
Semi-dwarf plants are 20-24" high, with excellent yields of 1-2" flavorful brussel sprouts. This is a good variety to freeze.
