Organic Arugula Microgreen & Sprouting Seeds
Organic Arugula microgreen seeds are full of flavour. Try arugula microgreens in salads, sandwiches, and soups. They make a surprisingly nice addition to pizza toppings, adding just a hint of hotness, and bringing out the other flavours. Microgreens are easier to digest than mature plants, so the nutrients they contain are taken up by the body as we eat them. Because they are more easily digested, they are actually more nutritious. As it happens, micro-arugula is one of the best tasting of all microgreens.
Storage: Our seeds should sprout well for a year after you purchase them, if stored in a cool dry place. If you’d like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer, they’ll last even longer!
All our sprouting seeds are certified organic and non-GMO. Compostable packaging is 100% plant film from non GE corn.

Difference Between Spouts and Microgreens
Sprouts are the first stage of a plants development, microgreens the second. They are grown hydroponically and without medium, and are keep moist and at room temperature until they germinate. The entire sprout is consumed, including the root.
Microgreens are grown in soil or a soil-less medium such as a jute grow mat. They are harvested after they have established roots and opened their cotyledons. Only the stems and leaves are consumed; they are harvested above their roots.
