Cabbage, Red Acre
Red cabbage is an easy to grow and rewarding micro! It's ideal for the beginner grower because it tolerates a wide range of growing conditions. It also does well during the winter months when the grow space has cooler temps. Loaded with vitamins C and K, red cabbage as a microgreen is also a vitamin A superfood! It has a mild cabbage flavor that won't overpower any dish or smoothie, and also makes a pretty garnish.
Red cabbage typically takes around 9-10 days from seed to harvest, add a few extra days for cooler grow environments (48-55 degrees). It also holds relatively well when mature, giving a grower more time to harvest than some micros.
