Jade Cross E is a fine hybrid that produces high yields of deep green, flavorful 1/4 to 1″ round sprouts on 28″ plants. The plants are more compact than other varieties, which makes them less subject to wind damage. Its early maturity allows for later planting when cooler growing conditions are more favorable. This variety is one of the best for freezing. Please call the store (740) 763-2873 for availability, prices, and sizes.
Size Or Color When Ripe:
As sprouts form at the base of the plant, remove the lower leaves and stems. Pinch out the center of the plant about Sept.15th. This encourages rapid development of the upper sprouts. Plants are harvested from the bottom up, as each sprout reaches about 1 in/25 mm in diameter. Plants are picked 4 or 5 times. Sprouts harvested after moderate or heavy Nov. frosts are much sweeter tasting.
