icrogreens are easy to grow, delicious to eat, and highly nutritious. For added texture and flavor, sprinkle mircrogreens on open-faced sandwiches; toss them in salads; or use them to garnish soups, platters, and stir-fries. A wide variety of seeds can be grown for microgreens, so it’s easy to switch things up and always have new flavors to try!
So, what are microgreens exactly? Microgreens
are immature vegetable seedlings (and some flower and herb varieties) that are just a tiny bit more developed than a sprout, but slightly younger than “baby greens”; they include the central stem, cotyledon leaves, and the first true leaves of the plant. Most varieties will typically be harvested at about 1-3” inches tall. But not all microgreens are alike: never grow nightshades as microgreens since the stems and leaves of these can make you ill (nightshades include eggplants, peppers, potatoes, or tomatoes). Instead, opt for any of the many varieties below or purchase our Microgreens Seeds Set
to get started.
