These microgreens have green tops with mostly white stems. However, the stems turn a variegated pink and purple with more light.

I think they taste like a mild turnip with a sweet cabbage-like flavor.

Seeding Density

Seeding Density for Purple Top Turnip Seed

By Weight

Home Microgreens Tray: 2.7 grams

1010 Tray: 7.2 grams

1020 Tray: 14.4 grams

By Measuring Spoon

Home Microgreens Tray: 0.8 teaspoons

1010 Tray: 2.1 teaspoons

1020 Tray: 4.3 teaspoons

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 Purple Top Turnip microgreens tray.

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
