Additional Information

CULTURE: Grow in a greenhouse or protected area. Follow the germination guidelines for the specific variety being grown. However, you can generally be successful by following the guidelines for Brassica family members: Grow in shallow trays or 20-row flats. Broadcast seed thickly on the media surface with seeds 1/4- 1/2" apart, and cover lightly with sowing mix, vermiculite, etc. Ideal soil temperature is 75°F (24°C) until germination, then reduced to 60°F (16°C). Maintain air temperature around 60°F (16°C). Bottom water or mist to prevent sowing mix from splashing on the seedlings. Maintain even moisture and do not allow sowing medium to dry out. If fertilizing, incorporate fertilizer into the sowing mix before sowing, or use a bottom watering system for liquid applications to avoid residue on the leaves.
HARVEST:
Once cotyledons have fully developed or once the first true leaves begin to emerge, depending upon your market. Typically micros range from 1/2-2" in height. For most items this will be 2-4 weeks after sowing, depending on the variety, growing conditions, and final product size desired. Cut with scissors or a sharp knife and minimize handling to reduce damage. Micro greens must be washed before serving. Shelf life ranges from 5-10 days under proper storage conditions.
