A crop geography of late brussels sprouts.
AbstractThe producing areas of late brussels sprouts are restricted by the prevailing temperatures, which determine the first possible planting date, duration of the growing season and growth during this season, sprout formation and frost damage in autumn and winter. In Europe 2 partly overlapping sprout growing areas can be distinguished: a large area of medium/late sprouts in north-western Europe (growing period May/June-October) and a smaller area of late sprouts near the Atlantic Ocean in southern England and western France, and in northern Italy (July-November). Crop statistics show production in these areas. Outside Europe sprouts can be grown in parts of the USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina and Paraguay.
