Microgreens are freshly sprouted vegetable greens grown from the seeds of vegetables and herbs. They come in a variety of colors and textures, with flavors ranging from mild to spicy. Reroot Pontiac has been growing 16 different varieties of microgreens inside their headquarters. The seeds are planted using a soilless mixture and watered daily, with a grow light providing necessary sunlight. The microgreens are harvested once they reach full height, or 1-3 inches.
Microgreens are full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and contain up to nine times the amount of nutrients compared to fully matured plants. They can be incorporated into a variety of dishes, including sandwiches, salads, and smoothies. They can also be used as a garnish for pizzas and soups.
