There is nothing like the aroma of basil! Basil microgreens have a milder flavor than full grown, so more is more with these little guys. Basil microgreens can be grown indoors at any time of year and are a nutrient-packed way to get your "green fix" in the dead of winter. Move containers as needed for best light exposure and temperature (65°-75°F). Basil microgreens are ready to harvest in about 16 to 25 days after sowing, when they have cotyledons (first leaves), or when the first true leaves (second set of leaves) have begun to form, depending on preference.
$3.99 6 grams

Botanical Name: Ocimum basilicum

Days to Maturity: 16–25 days

Family: Lamiaceae

Native: Probably Africa, but in cultivation for so long that it cannot be verified.

Hardiness: Frost-tolerant annuals

Variety Information: Mix of Genovese and 'Dark Opal' basil with almond-shaped green and purple leaves.

When to Sow Outside: Not recommended. Microgreens are fragile, and outside soil makes them difficult to clean.

When to Start Inside: RECOMMENDED. Sow indoors any time of year. For a continual crop, sow every 7 to 14 days.

Days to Emerge: 5–10 days

Seed Depth: ¼"

Seed Spacing: ¼"–½"

Thinning: Not required

Harvesting: When seedlings emerge, the first pair of leaves to show are the cotyledons, which can look very different from the leaves that follow, called "true" leaves. Microgreens are ready to harvest when they have cotyledons, or when the first true leaves have begun to form, depending on preference. Cool growing temperatures may slow the expected amount of days to maturity. Using scissors, cut microgreens just above the soil line when you are ready to use them.

I buy seeds right here in Colorado where the growing seasons are short at about 3-4 months long. Growing microgreens such as Ciao Bella Basil Blend Microgreens Seeds is a great way to beat Mother Nature. It is also a quick and healthy way to augment salads with a tasty high nutritional content vegetable. My wife and I really like basil. Most microgreens can be harvested in 7-14 days. Easy! Try it!!
