Alfalfa and Clover are what most Americans think of when they think of Sprouts. Tender yet crisp these tiny little plants are - to many - bland in flavor. It was in fact, Gil's utter hatred for Alfalfa sprouts that compelled him (me) to create a flavor filled alternative - Russian Mix, in early 1994. Between you and I; us Sproutpeople have completely changed the concept of Leafy Sprouts for a lot of folks - by combining seeds (which produce Sprouts) with A LOT of flavor, with Alfalfa and Clover (which have little flavor) we have created blends which transcend the old concept of Sprouts.
We wanted to not only like eating our sprouts but to crave them. We found that a Radish seed produces a sprout - in 4 days - which though tiny, has ALL of the flavor (and a far superior texture) of a full grown Radish. We looked (and still look) for more seeds like this and discovered that the Sprouts produced by Garlic Chives, Onion, Mustard, Cress and Arugula also have awesome flavors. We mixed these and other exotic seeds into the rather bland (though texturally exquisite) Clover and Alfalfa to create profoundly crave-able, super nutritious, Gourmet Sprouts! Italian Blend is so excellent and French Garden so perfectly delicious that gourmet restaurants use them!
The mixes on this page have the power to not only change completely your perception of sprouts, but to change your life as well! God knows they changed ours @:-)~
