What is a microgreen ?

A microgreen is a tiny version of a vegetable : radish, brocoli, red cabage, mustard, sunflower, arugula, … and a lot more ! They’re often confused with germinated seeds. The main difference here is that you’re not eating the seed itself. When eating a microgreen, you’ll cut at the base of the stem and leave the seed in the subtrate. You typically eat them when the cotyledons are fully developped (beteen 7 to 21 days).

Consumed at a very first stage of growth, they contain a real concentrate of flavors, colors and nutrients !
