Microgreen cultivation: To grow broccoli as a microgreen on soil, you do not need to soak the organic sprouting seeds. It is best to cover your growing tray airtight for the first 2-3 days and place it in a dark place so that all the seeds can germinate optimally. You can harvest after about 6-10 days.
Growing in a sprout jar To grow fresh broccoli sprouts, it is best to soak the organic sprouting seeds overnight (about 8 hours). After draining, please rinse the broccoli sprouts twice a day. After 3-6 days you can eat the healthy and delicious sprouts.
Note: The broccoli seeds can be kept for about one year if stored well. Good in the case of seeds means: a dry, airtight and cool storage.
