Description

Due to its vibrant, deep red colour, Bull’s blood beet is a popular choice for chefs and foodies alike. Beetroot can be a more challenging microgreen to grow due to it’s hard inedible seed hull which needs to be removed before consuming. 

It’s bright neon pink stem turns dark red as it matures making it one of the most attractive microgreens you’ll want to keep on your windowsill. Beet greens are highly nutritious with a distinctive earthy flavor, and crunchy yet juicy texture. 

We don’t recommend sprouting beet seeds in a jar due to it’s tough seed hull

Latin name: Beta vulgaris conditiva
Health Benefits: High in vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, zinc, iron, calcium magnesium, potassium, and antioxidants. Good for maintaining healthy skin, detoxifying the liver and protecting from infection 

Microgreen Instructions:
  • Difficulty: Challenging
  • Soak: 6 - 8 hours
  • Germination time: 3 - 6 days
  • Harvest from: 12 - 21 day
  • Flavour/texture: Sweet and crunchy stems. Earthy taste with a mild beet flavour. 

Instructions: 

1. Soak your seeds for the above mentioned time.
2. Sow your seeds and cover with a thin layer of soil. This helps them shed their seeds hulls.
3. Place a tray directly on the seeds and weigh down to ensure good contact with the growing medium and to help the roots dig deep.
4. Keep weighed until the seedlings have germinated and are beginning to push against the weight. It is better to leave the weight on longer for beets to ensure all seeds have germinated and will shed their hulls effectively. It won't harm the seedligns to be left under weight another day or two.
5. Place in blackout when the seedlings are about 2cm tall - use blackout to stretch your seedlings to your desired length.
6. Place in a sunny location or under grow lights to green up your microgreens.
7. Harvest as soon as the seed leaves (cotelydons) have developed fully.

Sprouting Instructions:

We do not recommend sprouting beets in a jar due to their hard seed hulls and longer germination times.
