Microgreen is the universal name for almost any green vegetable or herb that has edible leaves and is harvested at the coteleydon growth stage — the stage when the first set of true leaves sprout. The coteleydon growth stage comes after the germination and sprouting stages but before a plant fully develops its root and leaf structures. The first set of true leaves develops after the coteleydon — or the first two visible leaves — of a plant appear. When the next set of leaves — anywhere between two to four — are produced, the plant actually enters the coteleydon stage. If the plant is allowed to grow, it becomes a seedling.

The nutritional profile of each microgreen depends greatly on the type of microgreen you are eating. Leafy greens are a good source of beta-carotene as well as iron and calcium. Dark green leafy vegetables such as kale and chard are also high in lutein and zeaxanthin. 

Seans’ microgreens are not exposed to as many pollutants as commercially grown varieties. Because he has greater control over their growing conditions, such as exposure to pesticides and the type and quality of soil used, there are fewer added or environmental toxins in your microgreens. 

* Green Pea flavor of an English pea, mildy sweet with delicate feathery leaves. Four time the vitamins of tomatoes, eight times more folic acid than bean sprouts, seven times more vitamin C than blueberries.  Pea shoots are rich in protease inhibitors that prevent certain viruses and chemicals that promote cancer, and it is useful in reducing LDL (bad cholesterol) in the blood.

* Sunflowers – Mild nutty flavor with more sturdy stalks. Eat fresh, added to salads, used as a garnish, or used in a wide variety of dishes. A source of Vitamin D (rarely found in vegetables). Most usable aminio acid profile of any food, plus Vitamins B, D and E. 

* China Rose Radish – Rose colored exterior and delicious white flesh with a little bite. Contains a variety of enzymes that are currently being studied for their ability to inhibit cancer cell growth
