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 hundreds of 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.
