Microgreens



Microgreens (*micro greens) are a tiny form of edible greens  produced from the seeds of vegetables, herbs or other plants. They range  in size from one to two inches long, including the stem and leaves.  Microgreens can have surprisingly intense flavors considering their  small size, though not as strong as mature greens and herbs. 

A  microgreen consists of a central stem having two fully developed  cotyledon leaves, and usually one pair of the plant's true leaves.  Differences in the size and leaf configuration are based upon the  specific plant variety. For example, Sunflower seeds provide a very large  microgreen. At 3" in height, it has a pair of very large cotyledon  leaves and no true leaves. By comparison, Micro Mint has extremely tiny  cotyledon leaves and will have 3-4 sets of true leaves at about 1" in  height. More typical in size and leaf configuration for microgreens is  Micro Basil at about 1-1 1/2" in height, having the cotyledon leaves and  one set of small true leaves. 

Keep in mind that microgreens are  not the same as sprouts. There are important differences especially in  the way they are produced. For example, sprouts are gown in water, in  very low light conditions and are consumed as a tangled mass of roots,  stems and underdeveloped leaf buds. Microgreens have much more developed  flavors, colors and textures than sprouts.
