Flavours of Winter: Microgreens

Microgreen red cabbageAs Flowerdale Farm's microgreens are greenhouse grown, production of all lines continues throughout the year, however some varieties love the cooler weather. Chard, Red and Green Radish, Continental and Curly Parsley, Mache, Rocket, Red Cabbage and the Mustard lines will all be looking great over the following months. During winter we recommend that Chefs try to move away from the Basil lines as these varieties really don't appreciate the cold and tend to be lower quality as a result.
The growth of Micro Salads tends to slow over the cooler months, so as a substitute we recommend Chefs try our Mixed Microgreen Boxes and combine these to make your own unique blends of colours and flavours.
