just back from the lottie earlier and speaking to one of my neighbours who had been shopping
Now I know I grow lots of kale and also sprouts so when I was told that kallettes are a cross between kale and sprouts I thought ask the question
So members out there please feedback"........have you grown this yet? And if so what was your result/reward
Happy gardening as always
Brukale are a cross between kale and sprouts. You get little fluffy sprouts instead of tight buttons. Some supermarkets market them as flower sprouts.
They call then kalettes in america (registered brand name)
I had the seed from D T Brown. they are not as sulphury as brussels. We liked them.
Browns appear to be calling them kalettes now.
Kalette is a horrible word. I bought them in Belgium last winter as Flower Sprouts and we loved them. I hate sprouts but love cabbage and kale in nearly all their other forms. I have bought seeds to grow my own but have to wait till we get our new veggie plot sorted.

Sounds like a type of slip-on clog! I had my first real frosted sprouts the other night - superb flavour and sweetness to them. There's so much goodness to be had from the veg plot. I admire anyone who makes an allotment work well.
I'd never heard of these before!
