Brussels sprouts grow particularly well in Tasmania due to the cool conditions. Good plant health is supported with long summer daylight hours and good irrigation supply.

Tasmania grows about 14% of the national production and makes a 4% contribution to national exports. National farm gate value of production is approximately $27 million.

Main growing region is the Central North West of Tasmania which is close in proximity to the vegetable processing facility and interstate markets.
