Black Tuscany kale microgreens

Hello everybody,

Today is a good day to find out how to grow beautiful black Tuscany kale microgreens. They are one of the easiest growing and definitely one of the best tasting microgreens on our planet. So believe me, it is really worth to try growing these beauties.

Step 1: Choosing seeds (Day 1)


Choose organic raw black Tuscany kale seeds.

The seeds are very small so you don‘t need to soak them. Of course, soaking may speed up the germination process but just because of the small size it would be difficult to spread wet seeds evenly on soil (wet seeds stick to your hands and that is annoying).

Step 2: Medium and tray preparation (Day 1)


You can choose any tray you want: plastic, clay or wooden. For kale microgreens growing we will use soil. The ground layer in a tray should be about 3-4 centimeters. Sprinkle the soil.

Step 3: Planting (Day 1)

Scatter black kale seeds thickly over the moist soil. Seeds should beautifully cover the ground, but not be one on top of another. Water them again with sprayer. Watering is needed every day. The earth should be neither dry nor too wet.

Step 4: Covering (Day 1)


Cover the tray with another tray or using a simple plastic wrap from your kitchen and make many small holes in it or use special lid for microgreens growing until the seeds are sprouted. Tuscany kale seeds germinate best in a dark.

Step 5: Checking humidity level and progress (Day 2-4)

After 3-5 days, when kale starts to grow, take off the lid and move the tray onto a sunny window sill or a LED shelf.

Step 7: Growing and watering (Day 6-7)

If you are using our LED shelf, do not forget that plants also need to sleep. Keep the lights on for 14-16 hours a day or just turn it off when you go to bed and turn on in the morning. Remember to water your plants. Best in the morning. Young sprouts should be sprayed and older plants should be sprayed and sprinkled.

Step 8: Harvesting and eating (Day 8)


On the 8th to 12th day of cultivation, fresh black Tuscany kale microgreens can already be enjoyed. We suggest you to taste them every day and decide when the taste is the best for you. It is recommended to use kitchen scissors for cutting. Cut over the ground. You can cut them as much as you need for one day or cut them all and keep in the refrigerator like any other salad in a plastic bag or container.

I hope you didn’t get bored reading my instruction and decided to try growing these delicious beauties. If so, I really recommend using organic seeds with a great germination rate for the best possible growing experience.
