Brussels Sprout – a cultivar in the Gemmifera (hey! that’s almost my name) group of cabbages, grown for it’s edible, layered, leafy buds. These nasty (my opinion) green vegetables are tyically 2.5-4 cm in diameter and look like miniature cabbages. (Wikipedia – minus the opinion)
EDIBLE BUDS! Yeah. Right. One of these might pass my lips! As much as I love OWLS, I HATE BRUSSELS SPROUTS! But I never knew they grew like this – on stalks, I mean. And if it wasn’t for one of my favorite markets – Trader Joe’s – I might never have known. They don’t look like this in other supermarkets, that I’ve seen. I was kind of surprised that they grew on stalks, but then what do I know. I won’t even eat the things. I think they take a pretty picture, though. Even brussels sprouts have to be good for something.
