Hi, I actually live in Salalah Oman and temp is always between 25 to 35 degrees celsius. Will it be possible to grow brussel sprouts in this temp?

This crop was named after Brussels, Belgium - where they have grown this crop for centuries. This crop tastes best after a light freeze. I've never tried to grow this crop in your climate.... but my best guess is the plant would not thrive and the brussels sprouts inferior. Research indicates: Sprouts that mature during hot or dry weather will be flimsy and bitter.

Your average temperature would be too hot for brussel sprouts. They like a cool start.
