Microgreens are seedlings of vegetables and herbs. When a plant starts to grow from a seed it goes through a number of stages. Microgreens are sometimes erroneously referred to as sprouts however microgreens are NOT sprouts. The first stage of growth is called the sprout stage. Sprouts are normally grown in water then harvested in 2-3 days. The microgreen is the second edible stage of growth of the plant and is normally harvested after 1-3 weeks. The next stage is the baby green which is followed by the maturity stage and finally the flower stage. But from a nutritional standpoint, the microgreen stage is where you get the greatest value ounce for ounce. In fact, researchers at the University of Maryland discovered that microgreens contained four to 40 times more nutrients than their mature counterparts.
