About

There isn't much to say about Alfalfa sprouts that you don't already know, but you know me - talk, talk, talk. Here in the U.S. everyone has had Alfalfa sprouts. For folks with a natural love of sprouts they are fine and dandy, but for others - they have been THE reason that people get to hating sprouts. Stuffed in sandwiches, strewn across salads or just garnishing a plate, these ubiquitous Leafy Sprouts are often texturally unpleasing and just plain bland. Though we prefer our gourmet mixes, we can say that homegrown Alfalfa Sprouts are something quite different than the usual fare. Their flavor is mild at most, but their texture is great when harvested fresh from your sprouter.

Flavor
Crunchy and mild. Great in sandwiches, salads, or a as salad by itself!

  • So Good!
    These have a really good germination rate, grow quickly, and have a flavor far superior to the sprouts at the grocery store. I'm definitely hooked!
