Collection: Grow-it-Yourself Greenery

For a long time microgreens have been farmed to service chefs in fine restaurants, as tasty garnish to complement signature dishes.

This industry has seen a rapid increase and most foodies as well as the health conscious, have either seen or heard about these super leafs. But are these only pretty or is there more to them?

Microgreens are the baby leaf phase (first 4-6 leaves) in the development of herbs or vegetable seeds. Therefore the taste is quite concentrated and once use to it… you’ll never want to nibble on lettuce again.

As the seed grow from the sprouting phase the baby plant develops tons of vitamins and anti-oxidants. At this stage the roots have done its work and only the leaves and stems are used.

Nutritionists have classified microgreens as a superfood having between 10 – 40 times higher nutritional value than their adult plant.

Harvesting times of different microgreen- varieties differ. The commonly used microgreens, like peashoots and sunflower will be ready to harvest within 2 weeks. They taste fresh and full of flavour.
