Mild and spicy mixes are ready to pick in about 10 days.

Micro greens are showing up in appetizers, sandwiches, and salads in innovative restaurants across the West. They’re easy to grow from seed and require little space. These flavorful greens are the young seedlings of familiar mustards, cabbages, radishes, beets, and other greens. Simply harvest them shortly after they sprout.

Colors: Depending on the seed mix, micro greens can be a blend of varying green shades, but may also include bronzes and reds. Seed mixes come in mild and spicy types.

Size: Micro greens are intentionally harvested when they’re very young, often under 2 inches tall.

Planting: In mild climates, micro greens can be grown outdoors year round. In cooler regions, you can grow them outdoors anytime except winter at which time you can grow them inside in bright light.
