Broccoli Sprouts - Conventional

Broccoli Sprouts - Conventional

$24.90 Lb.

The most famous sprout in America.  Mild flavor, mild crunch, big time nutrition, and a whole bunch of antioxidants. Easy to grow - but Broccoli is a cool weather crop - so if you grow it in hot & humid conditions add a 3rd Rinse/Drain, daily - or wait for cooler weather.



Note: This is the same seed we sell for Broccoli Micro-Greens. This Broccoli is Conventional. It is not from a source which is certified organic, but it is produced with very little chemical input, and none near harvest time. We also offer organic Broccoli seed.

About

Famous for it's antioxidant content. Broccoli sprouts can contain something like 50 times the sulfurophane found in mature broccoli, by weight, so you get as much antioxidant in 1 ounce of Broccoli Sprouts as you would if you ate 3 pounds of fully grown Broccoli (Broccoli sprouts were patented! We're just relating what the published research (©Johns Hopkins University 1997) states). Broccoli is a very tasty sprout - it is the fresh vegetable our 16 year old son likes best. We've grown thousands of pounds of Broccoli Sprouts since 1997. We have purchased our conventional Broccoli seed from the same farmer since 1998. Their seed always produces large flavorful sprouts. Given the almost complete lack of available seed, we feel very fortunate to have it! BUT - it is NON-Organic. We now offer certified organic Broccoli seed as well, but for this seed remains consistently great in flavor, yield and germination.

We Sproutpeople are pretty Green people. We got certified organic in 1993. We've purchased seed from organic farmers since we began - in some cases demanding they raise their prices (we NEED them to be successful if we are to be able to buy from them in the future). We have grown our own organic garden (we even moved back-to-the-land in search of self-sufficiency), and have raised some our own garden seed over the years. We have long eaten a mostly organic diet. We stock over 100 seeds these days - all of them - with the exception of this Broccoli - come from sources that are certified organic. Now that we have finally found great organic Broccoli seed that grows sprouts with the quality and flavor of the those produced by this seed, we can offer you both. As green as we are, we are also loyal. Our farmer assures us that there is very little chemical input used in Broccoli seed production, and there is none at all close to harvest time. We feel good enough about this seed to eat its sprouts ourselves. We have fed these sprouts to our dogs since they were pups, and our children since they were infants. Enough said. Until we develop a secure relationship with our organic Broccoli seed farmer, and know he can meet our seed needs, we will continue to offer this conventional Broccoli as well. It is a truly great sprouting seed!

Also great for Micro-Greens Demand worldwide is greater than the supply of seed, so the price remains high =:-{
