Cabbage microgreen is one of the most studied types of microgreens. Its nutritional value is enormous, as we’ve discussed in the other article. Cabbage has many varieties, here we only cover some commercially available cabbages that have been commonly used as microgreens.



Planting cabbage microgreen is not difficult at all, and it grows fast. Also, you may want to try 1.2 oz seeding rate with a longer harvest day (12th day), which I find works best for my harvest ratio.
