Core Tip: Although they are available all year round, Brussels sprouts are still a seasonal product.
Although they are available all year round, Brussels sprouts are still a seasonal product. The game of supply and demand is in full swing, according to Menno Molenaars of Van Oers United. Many growers have started to harvest but see the marks of the long dry summer on their harvest. "We are starting to build a better picture. What we're seeing is that the years are a lot lower than estimated, both in kilos and the sizes."
 
The sorting is generally finer than in previous years and this won't change for the next few months. "The main growing months are behind us, there is little time for nature to compensate, as areas are being harvested weekly due to the demand. The traditional sprout eating countries, Southern Europe, Germany and the Netherlands are pulling at the market. The demand is expected to increase further towards the winter."
 
The prices were at a good level in the past weeks. "Looking purely at the yields the prices could be at a higher level right now. Due to the extreme weather conditions the cultivation costs are higher than usual." The dryness and the heat didn't influence the quality or shelf life. "It's good," according to Menno. "This is one of the reasons I'm positive about the coming two or three months."
