Red cabbage microgreens are the red cabbage plant in phase II of its life cycle. At this stage they contain up to 40 times the nutrients and minerals than a mature head of broccoli. Adding red cabbage microgreens to your meals gives you the same benefits in a much smaller, nutrient dense and easier-to-use package.
Red Cabbage microgreens have red and purple stems with leaves of variegated dark green. They make for a vibrant, yummy, extraordinary garnish and mix well with other cruciferous veggies and radishes.
Available in 2 Sizes:
Deli container - The weight of the red cabbage microgreens averages 40 grams per container. Fresh microgreens are packaged in sustainable, commercial compostable, clear deli containers. **LOCAL DELIVERIES ONLY**
1020 trays - Fresh microgreens are harvested from a 1020 grow tray and packaged in a 2 quart square reusable container. **LOCAL DELIVERIES ONLY**

Red cabbage microgreens contains vitamin C, Glucosinolates (cancer preventative), vitamin U (improved gastrointestinal health), anthocyanins (limit oxidative stresses and aids in prevention of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s). While their nutrient contents vary slightly, most varieties tend to be rich in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, and copper. Microgreens are also a great source of beneficial plant compounds like antioxidants. What’s more, their nutrient content is concentrated, which means that they often contain higher vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant levels than the same quantity of mature greens.
When you're looking to amp up your nutritional daily intake, red cabbage microgreens work well with most meals. Here are some of our favorite uses:
Breakfast - Add them to your morning smoothies or stuff them into your favorite omelet or breakfast burrito.
Lunch - Use them as a replacement for lettuce on virtually any sandwich or wrap. Fold them into soups or deli salads.

How We Grow Microgreens
Grown on an indoor, climate-controlled, vertical farm in Cape Coral, FL. Living Greens Urban Farm uses only organic seeds, OMRI-certified coco coir, and never any pesticides or chemicals.
Care & Storage
Rinse before use, only what you're using. Microgreens need to remain dry to stay fresh longer. They will last up to 14 days in the refrigerator in an air-tight container kept dry.
**Regarding local delivery policy
These amazingly fresh microgreens are meant to be consumed soon after harvest. To ensure the absolute best freshness, we only offer our live microgreens to local customers within a 20-mile radius. (Cape Coral, Fort Myers, and surrounding areas).
We highly recommend our grow kits to those wanting to try our microgreens that live outside the local delivery area.
Please note, if live microgreens are added to the cart, and a local delivery method is not available, the order will be canceled.
