If you enjoy both traditional white sprouting and purple sprouting, Lancer ensures you will be picking both types for best part of the year - what a mouth-watering prospect! Steamed lightly, we consider its melt-in-the-mouth texture and superb flavour to be on a par with asparagus as a gourmet treat.
