Microgreens are vegetable greens that are between being a sprout and mature vegetable, they are harvested just after the cotyledon leaves appear. Microgreens are packed with nutrients, rich in potassium, zinc, magnesium, copper and natural antioxidants. Research has shown that microgreens like red cabbage and radish can contain up to 35 times higher levels of nutrients than a full grown vegetable. Microgreens are best eaten raw, fresh and crisp.
More and more people are growing microgreens as a sustainable food source, that can be grown all year round. Microgreens can be harvested in around 15 to 20 days and are relatively easy to grow.
