Microgreens - Red kale "Scarlet" (Brassica oleracea convar. acephala var. Sabellica) - young leaves with exceptional taste belong to the vegetables that are easiest in cultivation and can be grown for young leaves. What are exactly Microgreens' They are plants that are harvested at an early development stage and become consumption-ready when they would have developed the cotyledons and the first pair of true leaves. Consumption of them brings similar benefits to eating sprouts, although they display far higher consumptional value than sprouts. Adding young kale shoots to dishes enhances their nutritional value and flavour. Their purple-pink colour makes them also a great garnish. Young kale leaves are a rich source of vitamins and minerals.
Growing Micorgreens is very easy, it does not require experience nor much space, as a sunny balcony or a windowsill would be just enough. That way you will be able to grow these tasty and healthy vegetables all year long. Microgreens seeds are sown to a shallow container or a box that should be placed in a warm and bright spot and watered. Do not let the soil dry - sprinkle it with water at least two times a day. Young red kale leaves and shoots are havested within two weeks after the sow, when the first true leaves would be visible.
