The B sprouts looked so lovable that I had to adopt them, but as it turned out, they were little but not tender. I had to cook them to the point of funky and they were still chewy. But I loved the idea of them.
I love baby veggies Robin and buy a lot of them at the FM. For some reason the growers here grow Broccoli but not Brussels Sprouts. I tried growing them one year and apparently aphids love them. I wonder if the ones you bought are a type of sprout, or, if simply picked much too early?
I'm in love with the Pak Choi (looks like baby Bak Choi) and want to grow more of those this year....they are addicting. I grew them last year with great success, bugs do not like them and they are a power house of antioxidants.
