About

Our personal favorite among the Leafy sprouts and also the most senior of our mixes. It is the perfect accompaniment to a bagel. Oddly, I (Gil) used to hate sprouts (I mean Hate!) at age 19, when I moved to San Francisco (from Chicago), they put sprouts on everything - including bagels. It really infuriated me. But now, I eat Russian Mix topped bagels at an alarming rate - have for years - sometimes without anything else - just a toasted bagel with Russian Mix. Moral: Never say never. =:-D

We include a lot of Onion in this mix because it is slower to sprout than the rest of the seeds. The volume of onion seed provides the flavor we are after, but when we sprouted this for our farmers market, we sprouted the Onion for several days and then mixed the sprouts in with the other seeds - after they have sprouted for a day. That method uses less Onion - and the texture is slightly improved - but, over the years we have found that mixes that require 2 steps often scare folks away - that's why we sell this as a one-step mix. We may be add a 2-step option in the future for those of you who don't mind the challenge and want to experience Russian Mix in its most total glory. In the meantime, you can always pump it up by buying some Onion straight and sprouting it for 5-7 days before soaking the mixed seeds.

Flavor
Mild and crunchy with a touch of savory onion. Great in sandwiches, salads, or as a salad by itself! An essential part of a perfect bagel.

Notes

Easy Sprout

Overwhelmingly our most popular sprouter, Easy Sprout is also our personal favorite. We have well over a dozen in our house. It offers great drainage and the best air-circulation of any sprouter.

Easy Sprout is made up of a 1 Quart (litre) Growing Vessel, a Solid container/Base that catches excess Rinse water, a Small Seed Insert that snaps in when sprouting small seeds, two Growing Lids (1 for home (Domed) and 1 for the road (Flat)), and a Solid Lid for refrigerator storage of your sprout crop.

Easy Sprout is the best all-around sprouter. Period. It is the mandatory choice for high humidity sproutpeople everywhere and great for travel sprouting! Very versatile - Easy Sprout can sprout virtually any seed, anywhere!

Easy Sprout is part of many of our Kits.

SproutMaster 5x6

SproutMaster is the greatest tray sprouter ever! It offers excellent drainage, and is the best sprouter on this globe, for growing vertical Leafy Sprouts. The SproutMaster is very versatile - it can sprout virtually any seed. It is even able to grow Grass, Greens and Micro-Greens - with proper care, and perhaps a growing medium.

We sell two configurations 1) Three trays that measure 5x6 inches each. 2) A Single tray that measures 8x10 inches. SproutMaster trays (of the same dimension) are stackable - add trays to build your own sprout skyscraper. SproutMasters are comprised of Growing Trays, each with a removable Divider - which allows you to grow 2 crops in one Tray, and interchangeable Lids and Bases.

This SproutMaster is the 3 Tray, 5x6 Stack. It comes with 3 Trays, 3 Dividers, and 4 Lids/Bases. That is enough Lids/Bases for almost anything you want to grow.

This SproutMaster is the single 8x10 inch Tray. It comes with 1 Tray, 1 Divider, and 2 Lids/Bases. If you purchase multiple 8x10 trays, you'll end up with more of the Lids/Bases then you'll use regularly, but extras can be a good thing....

1 Qt. Jar

This is a One-Quart, Wide-Mouth Mason Jar. It isn't accompanied by a lid. Those are purchased separately. Keep on scrolling....

The least expensive, most basic sprouter, Jars - when topped by Screen Lids, are a fine choice for any skilled sprouter or for those willing to work a bit more diligently at rinsing and draining, or as an additional Sprouter, for easy sprouts, like Beans and Grains. A great choice for Pre-Sprouting Grass and Greens too!

Half-Gallon Jar

This is a Two-Quart (1/2 Gallon), Wide-Mouth Mason Jar. It isn't accompanied by a lid. Those are purchased separately. Keep on scrolling....

Sproutpeople Stainless Steel 3-Screen Sprouting Lid Set

Made by Sproutpeople!

Fine mesh, Medium mesh and Coarse mesh. Our 3-Screen Lid Set is made up of Stainless Steel Mesh - in 3 different mesh sizes (fine, medium and course) - each nestled in a heavy-duty Plastic Ring. Our Screen Lids fit Wide-Mouth Jar Mason Jars, like those we sell.

The wider the mesh - the more readily water and air pass through the screen. Use the fine mesh (the finest mesh size ever!) for small seeds (Leafy and Brassica sprouts), the medium mesh for Grains and small Beans and the coarse mesh for large Beans. As your sprouts grow bigger, you can move to a bigger mesh size to improve air-circulation and facilitate the escape of hulls, thus making de-hulling easier.

Compostable Tray

A very simple tray just for Micro-Greens! The Compostable Tray is a small, inexpensive and attractive way to hold a growing medium - specifically Baby Blanket. It's great for growing small crops of Micro-Greens, decorative growing and growing at work.

Using the Compostable Tray is extremely simple. Just sprinkle small seeds on the moist Baby Blanket pads and watch 'em grow! Well, there's a tiny bit more then that, but not much.

Not a big crop sprouter, but very inexpensive and attractive as Sprouters go! The Compostable Tray comes with a compostable, clear cover and measures 4x7 inches.

Hemp Bag

Made by Sproutpeople!

The perfect Bean and Grain sprouter. The Hemp Bag is even capable of growing Leafy and Brassica sprouts - though it takes extra care to do those well. It's also excellent for Micro-Greens - it acts as a planting medium.

The Hemp Bag is the most convenient travel sprouter ever. It folds up flat and does a great job hanging on a backpack, on a boat or over a hotel sink!

The Hemp Bag offers superior drainage and exceptional air-circulation.

Our Hemp Bags are made for us, locally. They measure Approximately 6 1/2 inches wide x 9 1/2 inches tall.

  • The best nutrition for my body
    Sprouts are one of the most complete and nutritional of all foods that exist. Sprouts are rich with vitamins, minerals, proteins, enzymes, bioflavonoids, antioxidants, phytoestrogens, glucosinolates and other phytochemicals.

  • really delicious
    i love this mix. I put it on every sandwich and salad I make. The onion sprouts don't get as big as when i grow them by themselves, but the mix has the perfect flavor.
