Very happy with my buckwheat lettuce! Wonderful flavor. Easy to grow. (The only nuisance is having to remove about half the hulls so the leaves can finish emerging.) My cat kept stealing my buckwheat lettuce so now I plant a small tray just for her. When I give her the fresh tray she meows when she sees it coming and goes after it like candy!! I think you should consider adding buckwheat to the Kat Grass mix.
Note: I find removing the hulls is nuch easier if you cover the sprouts with plastic or an up-side-down tray at bedtime (after watering) and in the morning the hulls are nice and moist and easily slip off.
I have been ordering from sproutpeople.org for several years and have great success with all their seeds. For some reason my buckwheat lettuce seeds are not producing I ordered them last year and generally I'm able to keep the buckwheat seeds for a couple years but this crop this order the seeds seem to have died. Only 1/3 of the sprouted seeds develop into the microgreens that I plant. This is just a disappointment on my part but I will always continue ordering from sproutpeople.org they're the best supplier of organic seeds in actuality I love their consciousness
Plain and simple,these are really cool looking sprouts! Not only are the seeds an interesting triangle shape, but the leaves are awesome looking too.
I originally purchased these to grow into buckwheat lettuce, but they didn't make it that far because I couldn't wait to try them since this sprout as part of my first crop. (I am brand new to sprouting.)
As the reviewer above says, the hulls take a great deal of patience to work with. Especially (as in my case) if you aren't willing or able to let these little guys grow up into micro-greens to try them.
I did find however that removing them is relatively easy once the sprouts are about an inch long; but you have to pull them off individually to make it work.
On a positive note, the taste of buckwheat sprouts is worth the trade off of the labor involved to get them hull free prior to lunch.
Buckwheat lettuce tastes great! It has a little tart flavor. It is easy to grow. I try to wait as long as I can before harvest so there are not so many hulls to assist at getting off. The hulls in the under growth take the most patience, however I have recently been planting a little less seeds and it seems to make it easier for more of the hulls to come off on their own. The red tinged stems also look great in a salad.
