What are micro-sized vegetables and herbs?
Micro-sized vegetables and herbs are basically baby plants. Typically they are grown very densely in soil for approximately 1 - 3 weeks until they have developed their cotyledon or “seed” leaves and possibly a set of true leaves. They are different from sprouts which are merely soaked and allowed to germinate and grow only for a few short days and are not allowed to develop any green leaf. Sprouts are typically eaten seed, root whereas micro-sized vegetables and greens are harvested by cutting the stem and leaves off above the soil, leaving the roots/seed behind.
