MICROGREEN Cabbage ‘Red’ Seeds

Red cabbage is a popular microgreen crop because of the perfect blend of colour, flavour, and yield.

Deep Purple Colour

Dark green, glossy leaves and deep purple stems make this micro variety a showstopper. Against the backdrop of trays of green microgreens, the intense colour of trays of red cabbage stand out. In a salad mix, these micros add a depth of colour and streaks of red and purple.

Microgreen growers often make their salad mix bases with green varieties such as sunflower, broccoli, peas, or cress. Red cabbage gives these mixes a punch of colour.

Mild and Sweet Flavour

Unlike the spicy flavour of purple radish, red cabbage gives you the colour without the bite. The taste is sweet and mild, without any of the kick of other brassica varieties. Even the most popular brassica seed, broccoli, has a spicier and more overpowering flavour than red cabbage.

Good Yield Crop

As a micro crop, red cabbage offers you a good yield. A 10 x 20′ grow tray requires approximately 25 grams of seed, yielding up to 300 grams of harvest.

Fast and Easy to Grow

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more reliable and easier crop than red cabbage. In less than two weeks, these fast-growing micros are ready for harvest. We know from grower feedback that red cabbage is a consistently good variety to grow.

How to Grow Cabbage Microgreens

  • Pre-soak seeds: No presoaking required.
  • Sow rate: Approx. 12 grams for a 10 x 10′ grow tray.
  • Grow medium: hemp mats, soil, or coir peat.
  • Seed germination temperature: 8-25°C.
  • Method: If growing with soil, you’ll need to add 3-4 cm of soil and flatten the medium. Spread the seeds evenly over the soil. Press gently to ensure good seed-to-soil contact.
  • Watering: Water well with a spray mister. Ensure that the medium is damp but not waterlogged.
  • Cover and germinate: Cover the tray with a lid or plastic wrap and place it in a well-ventilated area away from direct light. This helps in germination, usually taking 2-3 days.
  • Weight the tray: Yes.
  • Remove cover: Once the seeds have germinated, remove the cover and place the tray in a location with indirect sunlight or under grow lights.
  • Watering: Water the microgreens lightly once or twice daily, ensuring the soil remains moist but not soggy.
  • Harvest: Your red cabbage microgreens will be ready to harvest in approximately 8-14 days after sowing. Look for the first true leaves to appear, which indicate they are mature enough for harvest.

Harvesting involves cutting the microgreens just above the soil level using clean scissors or a sharp knife. Rinse them gently to remove any soil particles before consuming.
