7-14 days. Harvested at any size, kale packs a powerful nutritional punch, but microgreens are especially powerful. High in calcium, and vitamins A, C, and K. Growing kale microgreens is a satisfying experience with the bonus of a delicious meal as a reward. There are dozens of ways to use microgreens. Start your day by topping a breakfast omelet with them, then add them to your salad at lunch, and toss a handful in with your steamed vegetables at dinner. Microgreens elevate any meal!
Kale 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. Harvest when first leaves appear and enjoy! Detailed sowing instructions inside packet.
This packet sows up to 2.5 10" x 20" flats.
Days to Emerge:
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 10 to 14 days.
Special Sowing instructions: Use a shallow container with 1"–2" of potting soil. Sow seeds in a single layer, and cover with 1/8" of soil.
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. Kale microgreens are ready to harvest 7 to 14 days after sowing, when they have cotyledons. Slow growers or cool growing temperatures may require more time. Harvest by cutting just above the soil line.
