River City Roots produces fresh crops of Microgreens year round for weekly orders to Restaurants, Chefs, Families & Farmers’ Markets.
Microgreens are nutrient dense young vegetable & herb seedlings harvested just before or at the first true leaf stage. The microgreen stage of the young plant is when the seedling has developed the seed leaves (cotyledons). At this stage of first life and first leaf the greens are packed full of all the vitamins, nutrition and energy that was stored in the seed. All of these benefits are available to you at this stage in growth so why not eat them with every meal!
