Some Quick Facts:
- Our microgreens are harvested on a regular weekly basis, to ensure that our customers receive the freshest produce and the highest quality. Fully compostable/biodegradable packaging is used to stay environmentally conscious. Our produce remains mold free for up to 14 days if Stored Correctly
- The weight information displayed on our packaging is the actual usable plant weight.
- If you prefer your microgreens in a live growing plant tray, please take the following into account, Caution! Some microgreen varieties tend to form mold in the root area, if not properly attended to. Make sure that your planting mat is well ventilated at all times. Please note that the weight of the products offered in live growing trays include the grow mats, water, roots and packaging. This is why the usable plant weight is generally 40-50% below the declaration. All live grow tray suppliers have the same complications when it comes to mold control. See what Wikipedia has to say!

Our Sweet Earthy Amaranth Nutri Special is best suited for raw applications as their delicate nature cannot withstand high heat preparations. They have a mild, earthy flavor that complements both sweet and savory dishes, and they are commonly used as a garnish. They can be piled over salmon or pasta, placed in sandwiches, served over quinoa, and mixed into green salads. Micro Red Amaranth greens are best left undressed and added only at the very final stage of finishing a dish. The delicate leaves will wilt if exposed to prolonged heat and cannot stand up to heavy dressings and sauces. It pairs well with green apples, blood oranges, carrots, bell peppers, onions, and seafood. They will keep 5-7 days when stored unwashed, in a sealed container, and in the refrigerator. It is recommended to use these greens immediately for the best quality and flavor.
