Description

Sativa Seeds from Italy (GMO FREE DECLARATION)

Beets are tasty from top to bottom, and the same is true of their microgreens. While there will not be a bulbous and sweet root to eat, beet microgreens provide the same flavor as the grown vegetable.

Bull’s Blood microgreen consists of slender edible seedlings, averaging 5 to 15 centimeters in length. It captures the essence and flavor of the full-grown vegetable in an aesthetically attractive, dark red color.

Bull’s Blood microgreen was specially curated to provide chefs with a unique, edible garnish that contributes intense flavors, textures, and unusual shapes to culinary dishes. It elevates the dining experience by adding subtle earthy flavors without overpowering the dish’s main elements.

Microgreens are generally harvested 1 to 2 weeks after sowing and are gathered at the peak of their growth cycle to ensure optimum flavor and nutritional properties.

Bull’s Blood microgreen is a source of vitamin C, vitamin A to maintain healthy organ functioning, and vitamin K to assist with faster wound healing. It has antioxidants that strengthens the immune system. The microgreens also provide copper, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and lower amounts of phosphorus, zinc, and folate.

General Info

  • The health benefits of beets are plenty. Like most other plant-based foods, beets are high in nutrients yet low in calories.

  • Packed with essential nutrients, beetroots are a great source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C.

  • Beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with numerous health benefits, including improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance.

  • Many of these benefits are due to their high content of inorganic nitrates.

  • Beetroots are delicious raw but more frequently cooked or pickled. Their leaves can also be eaten.

  • There are numerous types of beetroot, many of which are distinguished by their color — yellow, white, pink, or dark red.

  • Not only do they have a vivid color and delicious taste, but these microgreens are also bursting with nutrients. Like most microgreens, they’re a good source of Vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, iron, calcium, and protein. Beet microgreens also have a substantial supply of magnesium, potassium, and even copper.

  • Most microgreens look alike, but that is not the case with this variety. The deep, red pigment of beetroots turn the sprout stems to hot pink. Even though it is in a smaller amount, this color can still bleed and stain when the plant is cut.

Growing Guidelines

– Pre-soaking: It needs pre-soaking in chilly water. (no less than 2 hours and no more than 8 hours)

– Growing Methods: Hydroponic and soil

– Darkness: Needs darkness during the germination period

– Estimated Time to Harvest: 10:20 days

– Darkening Period: 72 hours

– Germination Time: 3 to 7 days

– Microgreen Color: Vibrant pink and magenta stems with green top

– Taste: Sweet and earthy flavor

  1. Empty the growing media into the planting container until you fill most of the black part. (Preferably a mixture of cocopeat and vermiculite with a ratio of 90:10) then use the sprayer to make it very wet.

  2. Soak 1 pack of seeds for several hours (2-8 hours), then clean them from the soaking water and use a spoon to distribute evenly on the growing media.

  3. Spread the seeds to cover most of the growing media, leaving 1 cm from the edges of the container, for aeration, watering and also to easily cut your greens later.

  4. Try to make very small spaces (0.5 mm) between the seeds with a toothpick (for aeration).

  5. Spray the box with water until everything is very wet, including the inside of the cover, to create a humid environment.

  6. Put the container in a very dark area for at least 48 hours

  7. After 48 hours, remove the cover to let the oxygen in and check the length of your greens then spray with water if needed.

  8. When the seeds complete germination and sprout, put the cover upside down on top of the tiny plants for an additional 24 hours. To keep the cover secure, put a small weight on top of the cover.

  9. It is preferable to leave them in the dark until the sprouts push the cover upwards as they grow. The sprouts will stretch upward in search of the sun or the light, this strengthens them and makes them more nutritious and easier to harvest when they are longer than the edge of the container.

  10. Remove the cover and take into consideration that the container must be placed in a bright place until its color turns green through the process of photosynthesis.

  11. Keep an eye on the water, always make sure the media is completely wet, but not submerged in water.

  12. Start harvesting when your leaves are tall and green enough (about the length of your small finger or they are 5-10 cm high)

  13. Use thin scissors to cut your needed amount of greens, harvest right above the growing medium and add to your delicious meals. It is possible to harvest daily until the microgreens run out and the process is repeated again after cleaning the box.

Important Tips

  • Follow up on the water and make sure that the soil does not dry out before the buds appear and make sure that it is dark for at least 48 hours.

  • After the appearance of sprouts and germination, irrigation is reduced to only keeping the soil wet and not submerged.

  • In some cases, the beginnings of rot may appear at the stem in the sprouts, which means that the sprouts need more aeration and the seeds were put very close together. The solution is very easy, oxygen water is bought from the pharmacy and diluted in the spray water, and once sprayed, it will disappear and the oxygen will be vaporized, and it becomes plain water. This white fungus is harmless and is easily treated.

  • On some winter days, the growth of greens may be a little slow, as well as the germination, so the seeds can be left in a place, for example, 72 hours instead of 48 hours.
