As we grow microgreens, sometimes we miss the bright colors that the full-grown plants bring. So, for a splash of color in our garden, we’re adding kohlrabi microgreens.

This Kohlrabi microgreen seed variety grows into deep purple sprouts with green leaves and purple veined stems.

Purple Kohlrabi microgreens adds flavor to any sandwich or salad and can also be used as an attractive green and purple garnish

Growing Kohlrabi microgreen is a quick and easy crop that can be grown all year round indoors or in a warm greenhouse. As long as you follow a few basic steps, you should have a plentiful harvest of microgreens in no time.

General Info

  • Shelf-life ranges from 5-10 days under proper storage conditions. Microgreens must be washed before serving.

  • Those flavorful microgreens make a great base for any microgreen salad. Once the greens’ flavor and appearance are to your liking, harvest and enjoy!

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

– Darkening Period: 48 hours

– Germination Time: 3 to 7 days

– Color: Deep purple buds with green leaves and veined purple stems

– Estimated Time to Harvest: 3:7 days

  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.
