Bigger than a “sprout,” but smaller than a “baby green". Microgreens are young seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs harvested 7-15 days after germination. Bearing a wide variety of flavors, colors and textures, microgreens are nutrient-dense powerhouses!
What makes microgreens recognizable, is the 2 small leaves called cotyledons. The cotyledons are the initial leaves to grow from a germinated seed, appearing before the "true leaves" begin to grow from the plant.
During early development, vegetables need a full array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to support their growth. Harvested when so small, all of those nutrients are concentrated and delivered directly to you!
