Organic Wheat-Berries Microgreen Seeds for Growing Wheatgrass
These organic microgreen seeds for growing wheatgrass are the Hard Red Spring variety which has an incredible germination rate and produces wheatgrass with thick blades and very even growth. It has the familiar intense sweetness that wheatgrass is known for. Wheatgrass is often used for juicing. It is also healthy chicken feed, with many claiming much better egg yield when chickens are fed wheatgrass.
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.

Directions for Growing Wheatgrass
With Soil or Jute Grow Mat:
- Place soil or a jute grow mat in a plastic tray like a microgreen growing tray with holes.
- Moisten the soil or grow mat. Drain excess water.
- Pre-soak seeds for about 6 to 8 hours.
- Spread seeds on soil or grow mat.
- Rinse or spritz twice a day, or water from bottom of tray if possible.
- Due to the density of planting mold can develop and can be treated with a diluted mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water gently sprayed on effected areas. Be careful though, “root fuzz”, which develops as the seed begins to sprout, looks a lot like mold the first day or two.
- After 7-10 days, cut off shoots and use.
