What Are Microgreens?
Microgreens are tender, immature greens produced from the seeds of herbs and vegetables.
Depending on the species, microgreens are harvested between one and three inches tall, after one to four weeks of growth.
Microgreens are similar to sprouts in nutritional value but different in that only the leaves and stem of the baby plant are eaten, not the root as is done with sprouts.
