For the past few years our grower Eelco van Putten in Dirksland has been growing purple sprouts. The sprouts are grown and tended with modern environmentally-friendly techniques during the summer. The harvested sprouts are cooled and dried before being packed.
The features of this variety compared to traditional sprouts are:
– Sweeter and milder taste
– Slightly nutty

Purple brussels sprouts are sisters of the familiar green sprouts, and also grow in the same way in fields outdoors. The purple colour is caused by anthocyanins (a pigment that occurs in various cabbage types). So, it is a natural colour.
