LONDON — Love ‘em or hate ‘em, brussels sprouts are a firm fixture of British Christmas fare. This year, the highly controversial brassica has been super sized, and it’s all thanks to the mild weather we’ve been enjoying.

UK supermarket Morrisons says they’ll be welcoming “monster” sprouts, which are larger than golf balls, this week.

The oversized sprouts measure approximately 40 mm wide and 45 mm long (1.6 inches and 1.8 inches) and weigh 35g each.
