IF YOU’RE SICK of hearing and reading about how amazing kale is and how it is the most super of all the superfoods, then prepare to meet the new bane of your life: a hybrid of brussel sprouts and kale called brusselkale.
The company who Frankensteined this vegetable is the UK-based Tozer Seeds and they have been selling brusselkale in the UK under the slightly more appetitising name “Flower Sprout” for a while now.
The website pitches it as thus:
The inspiration behind the idea came from a desire to create a Brussels sprout with a more subtle flavour which was versatile and looked great.Just 100g of Flower Sprouts® contain double the amount of vitamin B6, the vitamin that helps us use and store energy from the food we eat, and twice the amount of vitamin C than standard Brussels sprouts.
What does it taste like? Per Flower Sprout:
The product gets its fantastic flavour by combining the complex taste of the sprout with the mild, sweet ‘nutty’ taste of the kale.
“I like my men like I like my brusselkale: complex, mild and nutty.”
And lest we forget how kale tastes, let’s ask Google.
That’s what we thought.
