What Are Microgreens?

Microgreens are the seedlings of vegetables and herbs. Once the seed of an herb or vegetable begins to grow, it is considered a sprout. Once the sprout begins to grow, the baby plant is considered a microgreen.

Sprouts and microgreens are not the same. Sprouts are usually grown in water and harvested within 2-3 days while microgreens are grown in soil, require sunlight, and are harvested after 1-3 weeks of growing time, when they are about 2 inches tall.

Microgreens contain a higher concentration of many nutrients such as phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. They are four to forty percent more nutrient-rich than their mature counterparts.

Microgreens are easy to grow in your home as they require very little space unlike farming regular vegetables. If you have a window with light streaming through, you can grow microgreens. It's that simple.
