True leaves are the first actual leaves past the first or cotyledon leaves in microgreens. True leaves are the set of leaves that are what you will see in mature vegetables.
Here is an example of some true leaves grown from our Red Russian Kale microgreens. These appeared at about 30 days of growth and normally indicate a transition from microgreeds to baby greens. The flavor profile will change at this stage along with the more fibrous stems so we normally harvest quite a bit sooner than this stage. Some of you might like this look so we encourage you to experiment.
