Learning about micro greens at Gilded Greens

Micro greens are immature greens, harvested less than a month after germination, when the plants are up to two inches tall.

We are meeting with company Gilded Greens to learn all about Micro greens.

Micro greens are immature greens, harvested less than a month after germination, when the plants are up to two inches tall. The stem, cotyledons (or seed leaves) and first set of true leaves are all edible.

They contain high concentrations of nutrients compared with mature vegetables and herbs. Due to their high antioxidant content, studies suggest added nutritional benefits beyond visual appeal.

They are grown in soil; and typically germinate for longer than sprouts.
