Micro RadishA strong peppery radish punch
Did you know?
The same seed that becomes a radish bulb creates the radish microgreen. The radish seeds planted in the microgreen-method are not treated with any fungicide or other kinds of seed treatment solution that a radish intended for the fields could be treated with. Several radish seed varieties are called “sprouting” seeds because they tend to grow fast, are untreated, and have great flavour.

To extract the live microgreens from the trays we recommend using a pair of sharp scissors to cut the plant at the base, just above the roots, while holding a small bunch with your fingertips. To make sure you get the most flavour and the best texture, use the microgreens immediately after cutting.
Take care of your Micro Radish
Our microgreens trays can be kept alive, in a cool environment and away from direct sunlight (Best in your fridge). If the soil that the microgreens are kept in seems dry, feel free to water the base, from the bottom. Use the greens as needed – you can’t get any fresher – and after all – freshness is flavour.
Microgreens as a type of food are winning the nutrition race across the board. A thorough 2012 study published by the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry (July) analysed the vitamin concentrations in 25 varieties of commercially available microgreens. Amongst others, they analysed the vitamin content of China Rose Radish and opal radish. The study determined that the varieties of radish are high in vitamin K, Vitamin C, Beta Carotene, and Vitamin E.
The nutritional value of radish makes it ideal for maintaining optimum health and weight loss.
