FAQ

For all of your microgreen wonders...

What are the different types of microgreens?

Microgreens plant families:

  • Brassicaceae family: Cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, watercress, radish and arugula

  • Asteraceae family: Lettuce, endive, chicory and radicchio

  • Apiaceae family: Dill, carrot, fennel and celery

  • Amaryllidaceae family: Garlic, onion, leek

  • Amaranthaceae family: Amaranth, quinoa swiss chard, beet and spinach

  • Cucurbitaceae family: Melon, cucumber and squash

Are Microgreens the same as Sprouts?

Nope.
 

Microgreens are greens harvested at 7-14 days when their first true leaves have grown.

Sprouts only have seed leaves and are harvested at 3-5 days.

Can I eat the whole green?

Yes!
Microgreens can be eaten WHOLE and raw. In fact, most microgreens you don't want to cook so you don't lose valuable nutrients.

So go ahead, eat the leaves, stems, all of it!

Do you Use Pesticides?

No!

We grow indoors on vertical racks with no pesticides.

We do use organic fertilizer.

Can I compost your packaging?

Yes!

We use compostable packaging made with 99% annually renewable plant-based material and no BPAs.
   -More info here.
Our labels are made from tree-free unbleached sugarcane paper and are compostable as well!

   -More info here.

That's right, if your sanitation company has commercial composting, you can put our whole package into the Green Bin without worries.

How long do they last?

Our greens have been known to last well up to 10-14 days!

Keep them refrigerated, throw a dry paper towel in the container to absorb moisture and you should have delicious greens for a while.
