What are Microgreens?
Microgreens are the tender immature seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs. They have two developed embryonic leaves called cotyledon leaves. When the cotyledon leaves have fully developed, and the first true leaves have emerged, usually between 7 to 14 days, these immature seedlings become microgreens and are harvested. They measure between 1 to 3 inches in height, pea shoots usually grow to be 8 inches tall. Microgreens are small, but come in a variety of strong flavors, bright colors, and crunchy tastes, and are packed with nutrients.
There are hundreds of options for microgreens. Almost any vegetable or herb you can eat can be enjoyed as a microgreen. Our farm grows Sunflower, Broccoli, Radish, Zesty or Mild mixes, and Sweet Pea.
Microgreens are packed with nutrients
In a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, it was discovered that microgreens contained between 4 to 40 times more nutrients by weight than their fully grown counterparts. In addition, broccoli, kale, and red cabbage Microgreens, shows remarkably high concentrations of sulforaphane, scientifically shown to have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects.
