What is a MicroGreen?
MicroGreens are tender young plants with the first set of true leaves. When growing MicroGreens, once the seeds sprout it usually takes 10-14 days before they are ready for harvest.
MicroGreens are tender, highly nutritious, and packed with concentrated flavor. MicroGreens are versatile and can be eaten as a salad, or used like an herb to add flavor to soups, sauces and other dishes. They make a beautiful garnish and are preferred by chefs.
Are MicroGreens the same as sprouts?
MicroGreens differ from sprouts in many ways. MicroGreens have true leaves because they are grown for a longer period of time. They are usually cut and packaged without the roots. MicroGreens are harvested at the ideal stage where flavor and nutritional value are at a peak.
What type of plants are grown as MicroGreens?
When growing microgreens hydroponically, there are a variety of seeds that can be grown as MicroGreens such as mustard, cress, beets, herbs, chard, broccoli, and radishes.
