Investigating the agrotechnical suitability of Brussels sprouts for freezing


, : Investigating the agrotechnical suitability of Brussels sprouts for freezing. Biuletyn Warzywniczy 31: 225-235

The F1 hybrid varieties Acropolis, Kundry, Predora, Silverstar, Revulsion, Merlon, Porter, Titurel and Valiant were evaluated in 1981-83 for suitability for freezing in terms of yield, size, compactness and health of sprouts. The best overall performance was observed in Acropolis giving high yields (14.4 t/ha) with a high percentage (83.9%) of small (2-3 cm) sprouts.
