  • Nutrients: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and zinc.

Nasturtium microgreens seeds should be soaked for a few hours before planting. It helps water penetrate the large, hard seed husk.

You can grow these with the weighted and buried blackout method. We prefer the buried method as it keeps the larger seeds moist and is less prone to disease.

Nasturtium microgreen seeds germinate slowly but grow quite quickly after they germinate.

The stems of Empress of India Nasturtiums are a rosy pink and very attractive.

Nasturtium microgreens are ready to harvest in 10 to 14 days. You want two sets of leaves to form before harvest.

The flavor is unique, changing from a sweet, salty, fruity flavor finishing with a very sharp bite. It surprised me the first time I ate nasturtium microgreens.

Although I call these nasturtium microgreens, they grow to what I call baby leaf size before harvest.

Seeding Density

Seeding Density for Nasturtium Microgreen Seeds

Home Microgreens Tray: 13.6 grams

1010 Tray: 1.3 ounces

1020 Tray: 2.6 ounces

By Measuring Spoon

Home Microgreens Tray: 1.3 Tablespoons 1010 Tray: 3.5 tablespoons 1020 Tray: 7.1 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 Nasturtium 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.
