This Red Cabbage Microgreen has dark red, crisp leaves. Just like growing sprouts, growing Microgreens is an incredibly easy and economical way to grow your very own vitamin packed fresh food all year round. Growing Microgreens, unlike growing sprouts in water, requires a small amount of soil so the tiny roots can take hold and the plants allowed to grow upright.
Typically, Microgreens are grown in a shallow soil-filled tray and placed in as much light as possible. The seedlings are then allowed to grow until they have between one and two true sets of leaves. Harvest is quick and easy by simply snipping off the seedlings with scissors just above the soil surface.
- Cabbage Tip
- Heads are ready when firm and when the interior is dense. Heads will split when over mature; rapid growth due to excess moisture and fertility will also cause splitting. Packages contain approx. 100 seeds. You will need approx. 40-50 seeds to sow a 50 foot row.
