Difference between Sprouting sprouts and Microgreens

Sprouting is ‘bench top organic vegetable gardening’. Sprouts are not only a great addition to salads and sandwiches, they are incredibly nutritious added to fresh juices and smoothies.

Microgreens are an exciting, colourful, gourmet alternative to sprouts. They are halfway in size between sprouts and salad mix. Usually grown in seedling trays, they differ from sprouts in that they are grown in sunlight and harvested with scissors when there are 2 or more true leaves; sprouts are eaten much smaller.
