LARGE PACKET

10-15 Days. Did you know there is a fifth taste sensation? After sweet, salty, bitter, and sour, comes savory. Chefs in the 1800s named this flavor umami, which is Japanese for "delicious" or "yummy." That's exactly what Umami Asian Blend is! Layers of complementary savory and spicy notes, make this mix the perfect garnish for Asian dishes and meats or added to salads for an extra pop of flavor. Umami Asian Blend 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 three 10" x 20" flats.

Days to Emerge:
3 - 4 days

Seed Depth:
1/8” - 1/4"

Seed Spacing:
1/4"-1/2"

Thinning:
Not required


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”–1/4” 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. Umami Asian microgreens are ready to harvest 10 to 15 days after sowing, when they have cotyledons. Cool growing temperatures may slow germination and growth. Harvest by cutting just above the soil line.
