Flowersprouts called Kalettes in the USA are a cross between Brussels sprouts and kale but with a distinct sweet ‘nutty’ flavour
Its easy and very productive to grow and fantastic in the kitchen they’re nutritious (packed full of Vitamin C, E and B6) and has been developed over the last ten years using traditional breeding techniques so is a natural cross
It has a Brussels sprout-like growing habit with its tall stem and rosettes forming all the way up to a frilly-leaved top which can also be eaten
Growing Citrus can be tricky as they like lots of light, feeding well in the growing season but dont like to be kept wet, but they are tough and even very poorly specimens can be revived. Lemons and Oranges are great to grow purely for scent and the odd fruit but my favorite is Kaffir Lime as its an essential ingredient in Thai cooking and almost Impossible to buy fresh and the fresh leaves add so much more to a dish when used.
