Opal Basil Microgreens ( 1 oz )


Opal Basil microgreens add a pizzazz to dishes with their mini purple leaves.Basil is a staple in many Mediterranean dishes and enjoying them as microgreens is a perfect way to have that fresh garden flavor in the winter. They take a little longer time to grow than other microgreens but are well worth the wait plus we found that you can just leave them to grow in their tray/container, harvesting for an extended period.  Ocimum Basilicum.


Germination: 5-7 days

Soil temperature: 70-75 degrees for ideal germination and leave growth.

Days to Harvest:  14- 21 days

Growing Tips: Start harvesting when the very first leaves (cotyledons) appear or wait until the first true leaves grow out, on average around 1 1/2 -2 inches, but before they start looking leggy or stunted. Maintain good air flow for greens by not over sowing seeds and water, consistently but lightly.
