Brassica oleracea gongylodes
Kale is an easy 5-day sprout that grows quite well. Simply soak the seeds for 6 to 12 hours, rinse and drain twice a day. Kale sprouts contain high levels of sulforaphane, an antioxidant susceptible to help prevent cancer. Kale, as other Brassicas, is rich in vitamins K, C, B6, and E, folate, dietary fiber, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium.
Soak (hours); 6 - 12 Rinse/drain per day: 2 - 3 Harvest (days): 3 - 6 sprouts / 5 - 14 microgreens Yield (weight ratio): 5 : 1 sprouts / 3 : 1 microgreens
