Microgreen Care Tips
1. KEEP THEM COOL
Microgreens like to be kept cool. Around 36 degrees F (around 2 degrees C.) Normal refrigerators can run at up to 40 F (4.5 C) so you may want to check your settings and turn your fridge down a bit if you’re able to.
2. KEEP THEM OUT OF SUNLIGHT
Microgreens love light when they’re still growing. But once you harvest them, it’s best to keep them out of direct sunlight. Exposing some varieties of microgreens to sunlight after they’ve been harvested can alter their taste and appearance.
3. TRIM & WASH WITH CARE
Our microgreens grow on a sheet. When you are ready to eat, trim them about halfway up. Microgreens can bruise easily, so they need to be handled with care when washing. You don’t need to drown them. Just lightly rinse them in cold water and then gently run them through a salad spinner to dry them off if you’ve got one. It’s best to wash your microgreens right before you’re going to use them, not before you store them in the refrigerator. Otherwise they may have excess moisture and deteriorate more quickly
