In the past few years we have started to grow some new and exciting crops: purple sprouts and Kalettes. Purple sprouts don't just have a different colour, they also taste different. They have a less pronounced "sprout" flavour with a nutty accent. Kalettes are not sprouts but little cabbage heads. The leaves are purple and green, and the taste closely resembles kale.
Sprouts - the healthy alternative
I gain immense satisfaction from growing good quality, healthy produce year after year. Helped by my outstanding team of dedicated employees. All the produce we grow here contains important nutrients that form part of a healthy diet, particularly our sprouts. Sprouts are rich in vitamins, including vitamin C and vitamin B, otherwise known as folic acid. Folic acid helps form red blood cells and is beneficial for a healthy nervous system.
