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 16-25 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 Microgreens Seeds are USDA Organic and have been verified by The Non-GMO Project.
This mix includes: 90% Genovese basil and 10% Dark Opal basil.
This packet sows up to six 10″x20″ flats.
16-25 days to maturity.
Outdoors: Not recommended. Microgreens are fragile, and outside soil makes them difficult to clean.
Indoors: Sow indoors any time of year. For a continual crop, sow every 7 to 14 days.
