Cabbage, Red Acre

IMG_4199.JPG

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.
