Our brussels sprouts have bolted and the flowers look a lot like broccoli, which made us wonder if brussels sprout flowers are edible. There are quite a few articles out there about eating the leaves of the brussels sprout plant, but very little is written about the flowers. So we decided to experiment with eating some to see how they tasted, since we did read that every part of the brussels sprout plant is edible.
We noticed that the flowers not only look like broccoli but also taste similar to broccoli, too. However, we do know for sure that these are brussels sprout plants and not broccoli because we have been watching them form the sprouts and have picked a few off the plant to eat. And of course, I also kept a record of these when I planted them. Below you can see the sprouts forming on the plant earlier in the year.
