Microgreens are the early leaves and stems of growing vegetables or herb plants. The seedling is only 7 to 14 days old, and 1 to 3 inches (3 to 8 cm) tall. Microgreens are older than sprouts (grown with water in just a few days), but younger than baby veggies, such as baby lettuce or baby spinach.

There are many options. Almost any vegetable or herb you can eat can be enjoyed as a microgreen, such as lettuce, radish, basil, beets, celery, cabbage, and kale.

Many people enjoy the tiny leaves of microgreens for their fresh taste, crisp crunch, and bright colors.
