UK: Christmas sprout supply escapes strom damage
"We got off lucky this time. Our Brussels sprout harvesting is right next to the sea at this time of the year, so we are not greatly affected by the frost over the Christmas period," explained Blair.
In general the growing conditions around Berwickshire and the borders where Drysdales do most most of their growing have been favourable to those further south.
"Drysdales sprouts are looking very good this year, however as with everyone else, the sprouts are looking bolder than normal, but it has not been as mild and wet here as in Lincolnshire," according to Blair.
Although Drysdales supplies sprouts year round from around 900 acres of land, more is sold in the week before Christmas than at any other time of the year, 1500 tonnes are sold in December, 500 of that in the week before Christmas.
"In general peeled sprouts are becoming more popular, but in the run up to Christmas the people who buy in that last week are one time a year buyers and are just looking for a big bag of sprouts," says Blair.
