These mustard microgreens can be harvested at an early cotyledon stage or grown as long as possible in a microgreen tray into the true leaf stage.
The leaves are a solid red color with green stems. The color is intense, especially under grow lights. We think these are some of the prettiest microgreens.
The true leaves are frilly and beautiful, with green textured leaves with red veins. Eventually, all of the leaves will turn red.
It takes about ten days for Red Garnet Mustard Seeds to grow to harvestable height. But you can grow them one until the true leaf stage. So the harvest time for these microgreens is between days 10 and 30 days.
These mustard microgreens are great to use fresh in spring rolls, sandwiches, stir fry, or dishes where you want some spice.
The Red Garnet Mustard microgreens will add a zing to your sandwiches and salads.
Control the spicy flavor by adjusting how many microgreens you add to your dish.
Some people wait until the Red Garnet Mustard microgreens develop true leaves before harvesting. We prefer to eat them while they are in the cotyledon stage.
You can also plant Red Garnet Mustard seeds in the garden, where these fantastic colored plants become deep red with tender leaves.
