Microgreens are typically sold pre-cut and bagged, but Sweet City Micros provides you with living microgreens. This means they will stay fresh longer, and you can receive the most nutrients from the plant when you harvest.
Sweet City Micros is a locally owned and grown business. They do not use any herbicides, fungicides, pesticides or fertilizers. They are grown hydroponically using non-GMO seeds and filtered water.
How to keep your living microgreens fresh
- Keep your micros on the counter in a flat dish with water in the bottom
- Water micros each day or every other day
- Water your micros from underneath only, never from above (this will cause mold)
- The white hairs at the beginning of the pad are NOT mold, they are the beginning of the root system
- To harvest, cut above the root line
Leek: Micro leeks have a refreshing spring onion taste that works great in wraps, sandwiches, vinaigrettes, and more!
