Detriot Red Beet microgreens have green leaves with bright red stems. A more advanced microgreen but worth it because it has great flavor!

Note: The current photos are Bull’s Blood Beets. I will post different pictures soon.

These seeds are certified organic and non-GMO.

The red stems and tender earth flavor make these microgreens excellent in a salad because of the contrast in color and garden flavor.

The earthy, mild beet flavor is also 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.

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

The average days to harvest are between 13 and 15 days, give or take a couple. Harvest when first true leaves open and develop at the height of 2- to 3-inches.

How Much Seed Do You Need For Your Tray?

You don’t need to worry about how much seed you need if you use Home Microgreen planting trays or 1010 trays. Each seed packet has the correct number of seeds for a perfect tray of tasty beet microgreens.

The seeding area of a Home Microgreen Tray is 37.5 square inches.

However, if you’re using a different planting tray, use the calculator in the article below to figure out how much seed you need.

Seeding Density

Seeding Density for Detroit Red 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 Detroit Red 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
