MICROGREENS

Microgreens are young seedlings of vegetables, herbs and grains packed with nutritional value. Greens harvested at early stages are called microgreens, and the next stage of the growth cycle are leaves.  They are both a feast for the eye and appetite, they are the easiest food to prepare and best eaten raw in a salad or a plant-based dish. Flavourful microgreens like our Mustard Microgreens can be mixed with neutral greens to add spice and flavour to the dish. 

 

They have a crisp texture and come in a flavours ranging from sweet to savoury to spicy to earthy. With all types of textures and taste, integrating microgreens in your diet is very easy, especially when you live in urban cities like Hong Kong. Packed with great taste, microgreens can be added to soups, sandwiches, burgers or anything else you can imagine.

 

Most of the microgreens in Hong Kong are mailed from overseas, which is why we want to offer the community in Hong Kong affordable yet nutritious greens all-year round. Most farms take a couple of months, but only take around 2 weeks thanks to our aquaponics growing system.
