Bull’s Blood Beet microgreens have deep burgundy to green leaves with stunning red stems. Because of the gorgeous color and flavor, Bull’s Blood Beets are a staple microgreen.

With their dark red shoots topped with lovely leaves, the tender microgreens are excellent in a salad because of their contrast in color and bitterness in flavor to other greens.

Not only do Bull’s Blood Beet microgreens have a lovely color, but they have a bold earthy flavor.

The earthy, mild beet flavor is tasty in egg dishes or soups.

Some growers soak beet microgreen seed for 24 hours before sowing it. However, my test shows soaking does not improve germination, growth rate, or yield. Read soaking beet microgreen seeds by following this link.

Covering the seeds with a thin layer of soil may help germination and seed husk removal.

Beets are another microgreen where a seed heat mat helps germination and growth.

A Bull’s Blood Beet seed often sprouts more than one seedling.

The average days to harvest are 15 days, give or take a couple. Harvest when first true leaves open and develop at the height of 2- to 3-inches.

Seeding Density

Seeding Density for Bull's Blood Beet Seed

By Weight

Home Microgreens Tray: 5.2 grams

1010 Tray: 13.9 grams

1020 Tray: 27.8 grams

By Measuring Spoon

Home Microgreens Tray: 0.9 Tablespoons

1010 Tray: 2.3 Tablespoons

1020 Tray: 4.7 Tablespoons

All volumetric measurements are level, not heaping spoons.

I use these vertical-sided measuring spoons because the seeds are easier to level with the straight sides.

These are my recommended seeding densities to produce a great-looking tray of Bull's Blood Beet microgreens.

I like to allow microgreen leaves to develop to a larger size as they provide more nutrition & flavor than producing smaller leaves and stems.

Microgreen density depends on many environmental factors and seed germination percentages.

You may prefer to modify the seeding density, but my seeding densities are a great starting point if nothing else.

Check out the Home Microgreens Seed Density Course if you have a different size tray.


28.35 grams equals 1 ounce.

Three teaspoons equal 1 Tablespoon

Four Tablespoons equal 1/4 cup
