Small Commercial Microgreen Production – Getting $20-$30 Per Flat...

Microgreens are tiny vegetable or herb greens grown for their visual appearance and complex flavours and textures. They are larger than sprouts but smaller than baby salad greens, typically containing a central stem, cotyledon or seed leaves and the first young two true leaves.

Researchers have found that many microgreens like red cabbage, cilantro, and radish contain up to 40 times higher levels of vital nutrients than their mature counterparts. Just a few of the microgreens that can be grown include…

  • Lettuce.
  • Kale.
  • Spinach.
  • Radish.
  • Beet.
  • Watercress.
  • Herbs.
