Blooming Brussels Sprouts

Are Brussels sprouts male and female? Some of my plants are flowering

and show no signs of sprouts, while those that are not, show some small

eyes at stem that look like young sprouts.

Brussels sprouts ought to form the sprouts without flowering, just as a

cabbage heads without flowering. Those plants which show flowers have

been stopped by drought or otherwise, and have taken on prematurely the

second stage of growth which is productive of seed and is undesirable

from the point of view of growing heads.
