Production in the U.S. began around 1800 when French settlers brought Brussels sprouts to Louisiana.
The total annual production of Brussels sprouts in the U.S. is almost 70 million pounds.
Brussels sprouts were first grown in quantity around Brussels, Belgium during the 16th century, hence the name.
Brussels sprouts are very popular in Great Britain — they grow about six times as many of them as the U.S.
