Unlike fully mature Basil, these microgreens have more of a mild flavor. Microgreens can be grown indoors year round, and are full of nutrients! Move containers as needed for best light exposure and temperature (65°-75°F). Basil microgreens are ready to harvest in about 16 to 25 days after sowing, when they have cotyledons (first leaves), or when the first true leaves (second set of leaves) have begun to form, depending on preference. Botanical Interests’® Ciao Bella Basil Blend Organic Microgreens Seeds have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
This mix includes: 90% Genovese basil and 10% Dark Opal basil.
One packet sows up to six 10″ x 20″ flats.
16-25 days to maturity.
Sow indoors any time of year. For a continual crop, sow every 7 to 14 days. Microgreens are fragile, so outdoor sowing is not recommended.
