Who would have thought sprouts could look so beautiful? Stunning images of sun rising over a field as farmer prepares for Christmas
Something to sprout about! They’re the greens that divide the nation but no Christmas dinner would be complete without the humble Brussels sprout and these stunning pictures are sure to impress even the harshest of critics.
With Christmas fast approaching, this was the scene at Staples Vegetables Ltd as dawn broke over the sprout field.
The unlikely picturesque landscape shows the golden sun rising over the huge field and the stark contrast of the regular green Brussels sprouts and the vibrant red sprouts, which have a milder sweeter taste, make these scenes all the more extraordinary.
Sprout farmers are in one of their busiest periods of the year as they rush to supply the vegetable for millions of Christmas dinners across Britain.
The Lincolnshire farm is a supplier of supermarket chain Asda, who is already reporting a 13% increase in sprout sales.
And a whopping 1.4 million individual sprouts (70,000 packs) are expected to be sold at Asda during the festive period.
Farmer, George Read from Staples Vegetables Ltd, said: “These red Brusselberry sprouts are sweeter than your average sprout and are all carefully hand selected by our farmers in Lincolnshire.”
