Organic Broccoli-Brassica-Blend Microgreen & Sprouting Seeds
Organic Broccoli-Brassica-Blend microgreen & sprouting seeds contains broccoli, broccoli raab, radish, mustard, and arugula. This mixture is named after Brassica, the genus of plants in the mustard family to which the seeds in this mix belong. Brassica vegetables are rich in indole-3-carbionl, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells. They are also a good source of carotenoids, with broccoli having especially high levels.

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.
