Turnip Microgreens:

  • Growing Time: Turnip microgreens typically thrive within 7-14 days after planting with Grassroots Farms Grow Kits. While they may take a bit longer to grow compared to some other varieties, their robust flavor and crisp texture make them worth the wait.
  • Taste Sensation: Delight in the zesty, peppery flavor of turnip microgreens! With their sharp bite and refreshing crunch, they add a bold kick to salads, sandwiches, and wraps.
  • Roots: Turnip microgreens feature fine and fibrous root systems, extending from the base of the stem and anchoring the plants in the growing medium. While these roots are not typically consumed, they play a crucial role in absorbing water and nutrients to support vigorous growth.
  • Navigating Challenges: Watch for common growing issues such as overwatering or inadequate light. To avoid these challenges, ensure proper drainage in your growing trays, provide adequate light exposure, and avoid overcrowding the seeds.
  • Healthful Goodness: Turnip microgreens are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, including vitamins A, C, and K, as well as calcium and manganese. Incorporating them into your diet can support immune function, improve bone health, and promote overall well-being.

Growing Turnip Microgreens with Grassroots Farms:

  1. Preparation Prodigy: Start by hydrating Grassroots Farms Peat Pucks until they expand fully. Scatter your turnip seeds evenly across the moistened surface, gently pressing them into the medium for optimal seed-to-soil contact.
  2. Germination Glory: Create a humid environment by covering your tray to maintain moisture levels. Ensure adequate light exposure to stimulate healthy growth, and rotate the trays regularly to promote uniform development.
  3. Nurturing Nuggets: Monitor moisture levels closely to prevent overwatering or fungal issues. Provide proper airflow around the microgreens to prevent mold or damping-off, and avoid excessive crowding of the seeds.
