Broccoli Rapini Microgreens or Garden Seeds
Broccoli rabe, or broccoli raab, is actually not broccoli. It belongs to the turnip family of vegetables but got its name because it grows florets that are similar in appearance to traditional broccoli. Broccoli rabe likes cool temperatures, and seeds can be sowed directly into the soil in early spring. Once sown, broccoli rabe takes little effort to grow a successful and tasty crop.
Sow broccoli rabe seeds 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep. Space the seeds one to three inches apart. If you want to plant more than one row of broccoli rabe, space the rows 18 to 24 inches apart. Water the broccoli rabe seeds well immediately after planting. Watering pushes the seeds into the soil so they are able to germinate. It takes four to seven days for the sprouts to appear. Thin to 4" apart.
