Microgreens or micro vegetables are a collective name for vegetables and herbs, which you harvest and eat at a very young stage. You often recognize them by their spicy taste which is delicious as an enhancer in a salad or soup.
Microgreens are divided into two groups:
- Micro leaves: You harvest and eat both the stalk and the leaf at a very young stage.
Examples: Lemon basil, Borage, Mustard Red Frills, Bloody acid, Kale, Radish, Cress, Tatsoi, Mizuna Red
- Baby leaves: The baby leaves grow a little longer and you only eat the leaves.
Examples: Mustard Red Frills, Kale, Lettuce mixed, Chard mixed, Tatsoi, Mizuna red, Peashoots
Some microgreens can be grown both as a micro and as a baby leaf.
Microgreens have no sowing season, you can grow them throughout the year.
Sow micro leaves and baby leaves preferably in soil. Sow the seeds in the garden or in a pot. Cover them with a thin layer of soil and water. Sow closely together since microgreens remain small. You can already harvest after 1 to 3 weeks!
