Microgreens

Microgreens are often used in restaurants as an ingrediënt to add flavour or colour to a dish, to complement the taste or make the food look more appealing. There are many different kinds of microgreens in a big variety of flavours.

In the outside greenhouse, the following species were grown:

  • Radish
  • Peas
  • Blood sorrel
  • Mustard
  • Kale
  • Chard
  • Broccolicress

 

 

To grow these microgreens we have used Cocos Substrate. This is a high quality substrate composed from coconut fibres that originate from the bark of coconuts. The substrate has been developed for direct use.

It also contains a plant based fertilizer, with nutrients that stay present in the Cocos substrate after fertilization and can be gradually absorbed by the crops.

In the pictures you can see the results of growing microgreens on Cocos Substrate.
