 Types of Microgreens

Microgreens Can be Grown from Most Vegetables
or Herb Seeds, Including Some Grains and Grasses

Because microgreens range in taste - from mild and bland to spicy and bitter - we’re going to show you different types of popular microgreens based on the taste factor and variety:

Microgreens with a MILD flavor

Mild flavors include nutty and sweet, often tasting similar to their adult counterparts. Top mild microgreens include: alfalfa, borage, broccoli, carrot, chard and kale.

Microgreens with a SPICY flavor

Spicy microgreens are quite delish in hearty dishes and also the perfect toppers to some of our favorite everyday meals. We’ve all had (or seen) a gourmet pizza topped with arugula. Bellissimo! Top spicy microgreens include: arugula, cress, mustard, radish

Herbs That Can Be Grown as Microgreens

Often used to garnish desserts or cocktails (or flavor amazing salsas and lip-smacking guacamoles), most herbs can also be grown as microgreens. The most popular microgreen herbs include: anise, basil, cilantro, dill, fennel, scallion (but the list goes on and on and on).
