You can grow many seeds and beans into sprouts. Other groups of bothanical families are also very suitable for sprouting and microgreens.

WHAT SEEDS & BEANS CAN YOU SPROUT?

There are more than 40 varieties of seeds, beans, lentils, peas and corn suitable for your sprouting.

SEEDS

Seeds for sprouts are vegetable, salad and herb seeds. You most often cultilvate this group to sprouts and microgreens with leaves, but some you can harvest with a small root.

You can see on all seed bags in my shop, which size each variety is suitable for harvest.

·

 

GELLING SEEDS

Gelling seeds for sprouts are salad, spice or herb seeds. These seeds form gel, when they get wet. That is why, I also call them mucilaginous sprouting seeds.

You most often cultilvate this group to sprouts and microgreens with leaves, but some you can harvest with a small root.

You can see on all seed bags in my shop, which size each variety is suitable for harvest.

SEEDS WITH HULLS

Seeds with hulls for sprouts are flower or vegetable seeds. These seeds are sold with their hulls intact on the seed. This is because the seed inside i oily and therefore quite fragile.

You always cultilvate this group to sprouts and microgreens with leaves until they are so big, they cast the hulls off the leaves themselves.

You can see on all seed bags in my shop, how long you should cultivate each variety of unhulled seeds before you harvest them.

LEGUMES

Legumes are Beans, Lentils and Peas for sprouts.

Note: As only the below shown varieties have a sufficiently low content of lechtins to be suitable for sprouts, please do not attemp to cultivate hust any legume you may find in your cubboard.

You always cultilvate this group into sprouts with just 1-2 cm long white root. Not until they develop leaves. The only exception to this rule is peas.

You can see on all seed bags in my shop, how long you should cultivate each variety of legume before you harvest them.

GRAIN

Grain is a group that contain both grains and corn.

This group is most often cultivated till they have long, green leaves. You then cut the leaves from the grain or corn and only eat the leaves. Most juice the leaves for wheatgrass as the cellulose in the leaves is hard on the human stomach.

You may also harvest this group when they have developed just a few mm long white root. The sprouts are then soft and nice in salads.
