Broccoli Brassica Blend

Broccoli Brassica Blend contains broccoli, broccoli raab, radish, mustard, arugula.

  • Days to Sprout:  4-5
  • Soak Time: 2-3 hours
  • Yield: 1 Tbsp of dry seed yields 1.5 – 2 cups of sprouts
  • Storage Our seeds should sprout well for a year after you purchase them, if stored in a cool dry place. If you’d like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer, they’ll last even longer!

Sprouting Directions 

Soak: Put 1-2 Tbsp. seed in a wide mouth jar with a sprouting lid. Add water, swirl, and drain. Refill jar with water and soak 1-2 hours. (Soaking broccoli for longer than 2 hours can cause it to lose germination.) Drain well and invert jar at an angle on a sprouting rack, in a bowl or drain rack.

TIP: After draining, tap the jar gently to remove excess moisture. Rotate the jar and tap gently a few more times.

Rinse: Twice a day, refill jar with cold water, swirl, and drain well by tapping excess water from jar.

Enjoy! Ready to eat in 5 days. Refrigerate to store. (Sprouts store best when they are fairly dry.

Helpful tips:
• Some sprouts tend to clump together as they grow. To separate, fill the jar with water, remove the screen and stir gently with a fork during the regular rinse. Remove hulls if desired. Drain well as usual.
• The drier they are the better sprouts keep. Be sure to let sprouts grow another half day after the final rinse before storing in the fridge. Optional: put folded paper towel on top of the sprouts in the jar. Put lid on and refrigerate turned upside down. This removes excess moisture.
• If your home is very warm during the summer months, it may help to rinse the sprouts three times a day with cold water. Stir gently if clumping.
• To remove the hulls and unsprouted seeds from leafy sprouts, pull sprouts out of the jar into a large bowl filled with water. Swish gently using fingers to separate the tangled roots. Most hulls will separate and rise or sink. Discard the hulls. Collect the sprouts back to the jar with or without aid of a strainer. Return the sprouting closure and drain so you can continue for half a day more of sprouting.
• Some brassicas (cabbage family) like radish and broccoli develop very fuzzy root hairs the longer you leave them undisturbed and these can be mistaken for mould. You will even see these after a few days of storage in the fridge. Stirring and rinsing removes the root hairs for a time.

Grow Microgreens!
Soilless Method

Soak. Using a tray with drainage holes, rinse enough seed to cover the bottom of the tray. Soak the seed for 1-2 hours. Use a jar with a sprouting lid for soaking if the tray holes are too large. Drain, rinse and drain holding at an angle to remove excess water. Spread the seed evenly on the bottom of the tray and cover with a lid top and bottom or put in plastic bag.

Rinse. Rinse with cold water twice a day, using either a gentle flow from a tap, dipping in a sink, or spraying. Drain thoroughly.

Grow. The roots will form a mat from which the microgreens will emerge. At that point, put in indirect sunlight, florescent/LED lights or grow lights. The watering is then easy: fill the container 1 cm deep with water and allow to sit for a few seconds in the water and then tilt on an angle to decant the water until only some moisture is remaining in the root area. Continue to rinse twice a day as described above.

Harvest!
Typically, microgreens grown without soil are harvested at 7-10 days. Harvest before the next expected rinse so the shoots are dry. Harvest before the next expected rinse so the shoots are dry. Harvest microgreens using scissors or knife.

Instead of harvesting all at once, you can start to harvest microgreens as soon as the first two leaves are spread out. Take only what you need for your meal and allow the rest to keep growing or put the tray in the fridge loosely covered and a plastic bag or dome to harvest another day.

Grow Microgreens!
Soil Method

• 10” x 20” gardening trays (1-inch-tall preferred), 1 with
holes + 1 without. Smaller microgreen trays also work well.
• Good quality organic starting soil mix
• Parchment paper or unbleached paper towel (optional).
• Dome lids (clear or black) or plastic sheet
• Organic seed
• Mister bottle, cup measures, garden spray nozzle (optional)
• Scissors or sharp knife

1. Don’t soak small or medium size seed. Small seed such as broccoli and arugula are easier to sprinkle on top of the soil if they are not soaked.

2. Prepare Soil
Add water to top of the bag (or each tray) 12 hours ahead of use until almost fully hydrated. Rehydrate the bag as necessary. If you were to put the soil in your hand and squeeze it, you should not be able to get much more than a drop of water out of it for the perfect moisture content. If you want to mist the seed after putting it on the soil, reduce the water hydration of the bagged soil a bit.
TIP: To check for overwatering, tip the tray to one end. Water should not pool enough to drip out of the tray.

3. Fill Trays with Soil
Use a tray with holes. Fill with 3/4-1.5” of soil. The closer to the top of the tray the better aid to air circulation. Use a block or your hand to smooth and flatten the soil without compacting it. The back of a tablespoon or spatula smooths out the valleys. You can wait to put the tray without holes under until after unstacking/uncovering or add it to the bottom now.

TIP: Place a layer or two of paper towel on the bottom of the tray before adding soil for easier cleanup.

4. Sow the Seed
Sprinkle the seed evenly over the soil in the tray (pizza cheese shaker, spoon). The seeding density depends on the stage at which you’re planning to harvest. For small seeds for 1-week microgreens, start with approximately 15 -28 grams (1.5 – 2 Tbsp). Sow slightly less seed for 2-3 week microgreens.

Seeds do not need misting if the soil has enough moisture. Mist if you need more moisture. Use a spray bottle or a garden spray nozzle set to light mist. The soil should be moist throughout, but not soaking wet.

5. Cover the Seed
Doing away with soil as a seed cover decreases the work and time it takes to grow the greens. If stacking the trays on top of each other, use a cover directly on the seed like parchment paper, a plastic sheet or wet unbleached paper towel layer. When not stacking trays, the seed will need protection from drying out by using a dome/lid. Use a clear dome or an inverted 10 x 20” tray without holes. For smaller trays, use several layers of unbleached paper towels folded onto itself with or without a plastic sheet covering the top.
TIP: Most microgreens will grow taller when you keep the light out at the beginning, but this may make the stem weaker. Most seeds germinate in the light no problem.

6. Stack Trays or Cover with Lids
Stacking helps to quickly force the roots into the soil, provides darkness, promotes even germination/growth. Stack 2-5 filled trays on top of each other with an empty tray on the top of the stack with a weight in it. Check at least once a day to see if the trays need water. Cabbage family seed sprouts quickly, so stack for 2-3 days. Others stack 3-5 days.

If choosing not to stack, simply cover the trays with clear or black-out plastic, a lid or dome. Check at least once a day to see if the trays need water. Cover for the same number of days as above.

7. Expose to Indirect Sunlight, Florescent/LED or Grow Lights.
After 2-5 days, the microgreens should be ready for light. If the microgreens begin to get quite tall and leggy, this is an indication that they may need a bit more light.

8. Water the Growing Microgreens
Check the seed once or twice daily and water as needed. The soil should be moist, not wet. Once trays are unstacked, add water from below into the no holes tray as necessary.

9. Harvest!
Microgreens are harvested at 1-3 weeks with scissors or a sharp knife. Make sure microgreens are not damp before storing. If needed, you may use a small fan or salad spinner to dry the microgreens before storing in a sealed container in the fridge.

Instead of harvesting all at once, you can start to harvest microgreens as soon as the first two leaves are spread out. Take only what you need for your meal and allow the rest to keep growing or put the tray in the fridge loosely covered and a plastic bag or dome to harvest another day. Water as necessary.

10. Enjoy!
Microgreens make everything better, so have fun with them and add them to your favourite dishes!

Helpful tips:

• To moisten your bag of soil, add water ahead until almost fully hydrated.
• The roots grow under the soil so it works well to water from below if the tray has holes in it, or open the side of the tray and pour water beside the soil when using flexible plastic trays. Otherwise misting or watering from the top works well too.

  1. Old Fixer

    Microgreens in planting mix. I have been mixing daikon radish into my broccoli microgreens for years to spice them up. I have switched to the Broccoli Brassica blend . These already have radish in them as well as other brassicas at a much lower price point. They are vigorous and tasty. Great addition to sandwiches or salads or on their own. Mildly spicy.

  2. Wild Island Cat

    I am new to microgreens, and these are great starters. I keep a couple of planters rotating, and they are super reliable. Very grateful I found you folks. Just ordered more.

  3. Culpy

    Just received my 3rd order-will grow them under lights all winter.

  4. Carolida

    Fast growing and very good.

  5. 405Peugeot

    A good blend for sandwiches. For those who want a different taste with character on the strong side.

  6. BPhyre

    Sprouts fully and consistently and always vigorous. Really versatile and delicious!

  7. Mushroom Man

    Easy to grow and super tasting! Great addition to salads or sandwiches.

  8. Charles

    Very good in raw, awesome in any wraps

  9. NewToSprouts

    This is my first time growing sprouts and I have been so happy with my purchase. I bought the small sprout grower and the Broccoli Brassica Blend was the first crop I tried. It grew just as described and I was able to enjoy it with my sandwich in 4 to 5 days.

  10. rockhound

    strong peppery taste

  11. Mossvale

    We really enjoy eating these sprouts on an egg or tuna sandwich. The flavour is mild and it adds great texture to the sandwich.

  12. above average

    I love sprouting broccoli . Used Broccoli sprouting seeds from Mumm’s in the past. Excellent quality seeds.

  13. SproutPool

    Really delicious blend of brassicas. I like that it’s got a slight peppery kick to it. It was very easy to sprout in the easy sprouter and had a high yield. I decided to sprout two but staggered the days so I always had plentiful for the week. It’s great in nori rolls. It’s definitely going to be a staple in my household! Thanks Mumm’s, you guys are awesome!

  14. Caviartax

    Easy to grow into microgreens.. Flavour is exceptional

  15. twinkletoes

    I purchased the black sunflower seed mix and the brassica mix. Both excellent in germination rate and time of germination. So I rate both at the highest 5 and also for great flavour and I know they are the best for nutritional content-all sprouted greens. Great product for reliability!

  16. Dave

    VERY strong smell of broccoli (surprise!). Some seeds in the blend don’t seem to germinate; approx 20%. Something in here is very piquant, which makes a pleasant addition to the overall taste. Very quick to germinate – about two days.

  17. Sprout-lover

    I use this sprout as a substitute for lettuce in my salads.

  18. KarinD

    The Broccoli Brassica was easy to grow and tasted excellent. This was my first sprouting experience and I was really happy with the quality of product. I had some product questions and the customer service at Mumm’s is exceptional. I received fast, courteous and professional answers to all my inquiries. I was really impressed with the company. Highly recommend the products and company.

  19. Microgreen mama

    A very tasty microgreen. The radish and mustard add a lot of favorite.

  20. Katelyn

    I really enjoy this blend. It taste great on its own, as a salad mixed in foods. Very versatile and easy to grow.

  21. snoringcat

    I wanted to grow some micro greens indoors over the cold winter months. I put the seeds in soil and used light from the window sill. Don’t start with this one if you have never done micro greens before pick peas or sunflowers because it is a little fussy and not as much info on it if you are starting out. But it has a nice peppery flavour and goes well in salads.

  22. Jennifer

    This mix, in my opinion, has a great taste and really works well together. It’s become my favorite 🙂

  23. Half Pint

    Growing these sprouts is easy, I use them in open face sandwiches, salads and especially in an egg white pancake topped with feta, tomato and sprouts.

  24. Mobile Grow

    Always been an avid gardener and decided to start into microgreens with this blend being my first choice. Shipping – FAST and PERFECT. First trays – excellent germination rate but uneven growth. (my fault). Second trays – exceptional and high yield. Use more than 50% peat moss and whatever else you like as soil blend and expect great results!

  25. Jonathan

    The Broccoli Brassica Blend is one of my absolute favourites! I’ve been sprouting non-stop for about five years now, with mum’s being my exclusive seed provider. I’ve experimented with all sorts of seeds from mum’s, and these seeds along with the Spring Salad Mix and the Broccoli Raab are the ones I use most frequently. Sprouts are prolific, hardy and always a success!

  26. wiggles

    Delivery time even over the holidays was terrific! And the reliability of sprouting such a high percentage and of course quality and flavour great1

  27. Madilynn

    I have bought these for about 8 years now. We have, every day, a mixing bowl of salad between 2 of us and almost every person who tries it starts to do micro greens using this blend. We also us speckled pea and black oil sunflower. So full of nutrition. Love these seeds and this company!

  28. Manishwater

    We are sure that your product is good, but we managed to ruin our first attempt.

  29. G.W.Davidge

    thanks to the urban gardener that i found your site,and thank you for such great products and service

  30. RMD51

    This mix is very healthy with a strong flavour. I add fenugreek and red cabbage to the mix for and even wider range of vitamins and minerals.

  31. RMD51

    I use the BBB as a base and add fenugreek and red radish. Sometimes I mix that blend with clover/alfalfa to make the taste more mild

  32. Mary Kay simon

    Love these mixed with alfalfa seeds and clover. I use them in sandwiches, wraps, salads and especially green drinks.

  33. Koko

    Seeds arrived quickly, germinated easily and produced great tasting microgreens! Will purchase again.

  34. Elaine Ellinger

    I was a little dubious using my Biosta Sprouter to sprout this mix because a jar is recommended. Happy to report they sprouted well and were delicious! My husband uses sprouts in his sandwiches and I put them in my salad.

  35. Healthy Grandma

    Love these sprouts, always grow nicely and have tons of flavour

  36. autonomous harvest

    First off, these are good quality seeds. I bought this blend for microgreen growing because they were cheaper than broccoli, which is what I normally grow. Expect this blend to have a heavy dose of spice.

    All of these seeds germinate well together, HOWEVER they all grow at different rates and sizes. So if you are growing micro greens at a standard rate of 1 0z. seed per 1020 tray, you’re going to end up with a canopy of larger leaves and an overly humid understory of smaller ones. This is not ideal, and you’re likely to develop problems in the understory. To get around this, use a sparser rate with this blend, perhaps closer to .75 or even .5 OZ per tray. Of course, this is going to lower your yield vis-a-vis a single variety – so if yield is important to you, stick to one variety per tray and only blend different varieties after cutting.

    I wouldn’t recommend this blend. The cost saving will be negated by the extra money spent o growing medium for the necessary lower seeding rate.

  37. Irelandais

    Just new to microgreens and thought this might be a good mix to use in salads. It has some spicy components which are there own would be too strong for me for in a mix of greens is just right.

  38. nicole

    Have been using this sprout for years . Three days before the end of one batch, I start my next one to never run out . A staple in nightly salads

  39. Billy Belly III

    As per the title, I’ve been quite satisfied with Broccoli Brassica Blend seeds from Mumm’s and have never had a problem sprouting the seeds. While I do not like eating broccoli these sprouts don’t have Much of a Broccoli taste. My research indicates that one cup of Broccoli sprouts may have as much nutrition in them as wasting 40 Broccoli plants !!! I began using this product days after my leukaemia diagnosis a few years back. I won’t say that the sprouts cured me but they helped me by providing extra nutrition and on treatment days when I was only able to eat a variety of sprouts. Easy and quick to grow, great taste and appeal. The orders have always been fast and well packaged. I stay with Mumm’s Sprouting Seeds because they have always delivered (pardon the pun) on their promises, high quality of product, and excellent service.

  40. Jewwell

    This mix grows well and is highly nutritious and flavourful. It has become my favourite.

  41. Gardener

    The order arrived in just a few days. We love this blend. It sprouts quickly and has a nice ‘spicy’ flavour.

  42. Matt Leger

    High Quality Seeds. Fair prices. Great customer service. What’s not to love? Our broccoli/brassica blend came in like a thick carpet in less than a week. Radish sprouts turned out really good too and have a nice bite to them. These seeds work excellent with soilless mediums like hemp mats. I highly recommend this company and their seeds. I’m very impressed with my experience and will most definitely shop again. Thank you!!

  43. niclal

    have been purchasing this product for over 5 years. once finished, I immediately start a new batch ready in a few days . part of my daily salad presentations 7 days a week

  44. HappySprouter

    Easy to grow and lovely burst of flavour

  45. 7777

    The broccoli brassica blend produces beautiful sprouts that are delicious, especially combined with other sprouts. They have a zippy flavor that is mellowed if combined with other milder sprouts such as alfalfa or clover. We also like them in salads, sandwiches/wraps or with cottage cheese. This is quickly becoming a favourite of mine!

  46. Christian Robinson

    I have these in jars with some other sprouts and keep 3 jars going so I can have some every day. Sprout great following the instructions.

  47. Craving greens

    I received my order from Mumms very quickly and all was as I had ordered. Very happy with this company and their amazing products. I like to have a constant supply of these fresh super greens all winter long. Really helps getting through the dark and cold days.

  48. SB123

    The site recommends growing in a sprouting jar and I have never had success with this seed as I do with other seeds. I am not sure what the problem is and they were recently bought at a health food store. I will be experimenting using a sprouting tray as I will give it another go.

  49. Getting Clean

    I like the spicy flavor. Great on salads and sandwiches
