About

Growing Greens is a bit more work than growing sprouts, but they offer great culinary enrichment, and it's fun to do.

To find greater detail, and for thorough Instructions, click the name of the Seed or Mix you want to grow or know about.

The Seeds

Buckwheat Lettuce

Whole. In Hull Buckwheat

These Greens which are often called Buckwheat Lettuce, are sprouted (as are almost all Greens) for a couple days and then planted on soil or a similar medium, kept moist for 5 - 7 days to produce a full crop of very tender thin shoots with cute, and outrageously tender leaves and red tinged stems. Very easy to grow. Read this information before ordering.

Nalo Greens

Buckwheat Lettuce, Sunflower Greens, Pea Shoots, and Radish

We discontinued our old Mesclun Mix Sprout Salad in favor of this blend of Big Greens. At the same time we have expanded our offerings of Micro-Greens, which more than makes up for the absence of the old mix. We hate to disappoint anyone, but really, this is a good change. We have changed the name as well as the ingredients. The name Nalo Greens is from Hawaii, which has been a vacation destination for our family more than once over the years. It's about time we pay tribute for all the joy Hawaii has given us. The trend on the gourmet side of the sprout industry is towards Baby Greens. A wonderful tasting combination with a great range of textures and striking visual appeal. It is a salad or a salad topping, a sandwich addition, a mix-in for pasta or anything else you can think of - and it is super nutritious as all live/raw foods are.

Pea Shoots

Speckled, Snow or Other Good Shoot Producing Pea

Grown from virtually any Pea variety, Shoots are the plant above the soil. They produce a robust, tender Shoot in 8 - 14 days (depending on your climate, time of year and for how long you grow them). Really excellent stir-fried quickly with some garlic and tamari (soy sauce) and (optionally) ginger.

Note: You can grow shoots from any Pea. They all have different characteristics, so experiment.

Spicy Salad Greens

Daikon Radish, Cress and Arugula

An exceptionally tasty and aromatic Brassica mix. This one can be grown on soil or similar medium, a thoroughly moistened Hemp Bag or our handsome and inexpensive, the Compostable Tray with some Baby Blanket. Milder than (not as hot) the sprouts produced by these same seeds, Spicy Salad Greens is a beautiful gourmet addition to salads - just scatter a small bunch on top. We never give away our mix recipes, but we will warn you that this mix is made up mostly of Daikon Radish. The Cress and Arugula also grow much smaller plants, so you may not even see them when you harvest. They are there though, and as they have so much flavor, they impart what we want. Do be sure to cut as close to the medium as possible when harvesting, so you get as much of their flavors as possible.

Sunflower Greens

Black Oil Sunflower - in shell

Greens grown from Sunflowers are amazingly delicious! One of the greatest surprises in the world of sprouts are Sunnys! If you you don't feel you know us well enough to take our word for it, just look under your bird feeder in summertime for a sorta thick stemmed plant about 4-6"" tall, with 2 leaves on top. Pick it off above the soil - wash well - and eat it stem and leaves..... See? Great aren't they? Now you can grow your own!

Notes

You may want a Sprouter too (to sprout your seeds before planting), if you don't already have one you like.

You will also want a medium to grow Greens upon. Take a look at our offerings here: Mediums.
