  • The farmer's market-style sprout trees, with their plume of foliage and thick stem that keeps sprouts fresh for up to a month, are particularly in demand, with sales of them almost doubling over the past three years, while sales of prepared sprouts, that can just be tipped in a saucepan with no finickety peeling or crossing have gone up 25 per cent in the same period. - Telegraph online, Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph
