What Are Microgreens?
Microgreens are really just baby edible versions of many common vegetables and herbs we eat. They are cut-harvested, usually 7-10 days after germinating. Stored in the seed are a TON of nutrients. In fact, pound-for-pound, microgreens contain four to ten times the nutrients of a full-grown plant! Why? Seeds store nutrients to get themselves going. They need this energy to establish roots in order to extract nutrients from the soil. Because they are cut just as they are developing roots, all of that nutrition has gone into growing their first set of true leaves, which are the ones we eat!
