Brussels sprouts belong to the Brassicaceae family and are grown in many areas of the world throughout the year, but especially in central and northern Europe. Being a variety of cabbage, in the early juvenile stages the plant is the same as that of cabbages. Later, during growth, the plant develops a central stem that can reach a meter in height and sprouts develop around the stem.
