Maximus is an excellent variety of Brussels sprout, considered by those in the know to be the best early season variety. It has a long cropping period, which can begin as early as September and will last all the way through until late December. The stems of this highly productive Brussels sprout are laden with small, sweet sprouts that taste fantastic. It might be a stalwart of veg patches and allotments, but it also looks great in beds and borders alongside ornamentals. It only grows to 75cm (30in) high. Sow from March to April to harvest September to December.
This variety, together with all the other varieties in our RHS AGM Veg Seed Collection, have been awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society. Such plants have been awarded this accolade after testing and assessment by the society, and is only given to plants that have proved to have excellent garden performance and worth growing.
