- Soak8 - 12 hoursThe amount of time your seeds should soak in cool water. Soaking is how we begin the sprouting process in most cases.
- Rinse / Drain2 - 3 times per dayHow often your seeds should be watered. Rinsing thoroughly and then draining as much water as possible are key components to growing great sprouts.
- Harvest5 - 6 daysThe time it takes to grow a finished Sprout, or other crop (Micro-Greens, Grass, Greens) from a dry Seed. Note: This "finished" Sprout is our preference. you may grow them for as long as you want! In fact, we suggest that you taste them at every rinse to discover when you like them best.
- Yield7 to 1The amount of Sprouts, Grass, Greens or Micro-Greens produced by 1 unit of Seed. For Example 2:1 means that 1 pound of Seed will produce 2 pounds of Sprouts or whatever crop you are growing. You do not have to grow them all at once of course, unless you wish to =:-D

My favorite sprout. Easy to sprout. After the de-hulling process - I put the sprout mass in a regular salad spinner that I have put a large clean dish towel into, folding the edges to the inside, then I spin out the extra moisture. I do put a new dry dish towel or paper towel with the sprouts if keeping in the fridge and sometime put in a fresh towel after a day or 2 if I have found that the towel is too damp, but they get eaten pretty fast. We eat them in salads, sandwiches and I love to make sprout "nests" and put lovely things on top- tuna salads, guacamole, cashew dips &spreads. Sprouts on a plate make me feel so happy, it makes whatever you are eating feel special.
These sprouts are so delicate and have an excellent taste. They grew fast and are full of life!
It was interesting to read about. Something that you can learn about. Something that you can grow in your garden at home
Since I've gotten back into sprouting and got my own SproutMaster (used to borrow/share with roommate) I went with Alfalfa sprouts to grow first, and am not disappointed! They are so easy to grow in the SproutMaster and sooo good, I add them to EVERYTHING I eat!
I do have a question about greening though..your directions say "Greening On the 4th day relocate your sprouts if necessary. If you've been keeping them away from light, move them. Avoid direct sun - it can cook your sprouts. Indirect sunlight is best but virtually any light will do."
Does this mean to take the lid off of the tray as well, or just relocate to get more indirect sun hitting the tray? Thanks!
Sproutpeople Response: Remove the lid/cover. Most definitely
My favorite sprout in the world. Good seeds, good flavor.
I had to buy 2 Easy Sprouters to keep up with the demand for one meal of salads for a family of 4. My kids, aged 10 & 12, love them, and always ask for more, but they were gone using one sprouted. We cut up an avocado (or 2) and mix with a ton of alfalfa sprouts and dress them with Italian salad dressing. Very delicious!
I enjoy trying out various types of sprouts but my family always prefers alfalfa. Sprout People has the best alfalfa with very good germination rate!
These have a really good germination rate, grow quickly, and have a flavor far superior to the sprouts at the grocery store. I'm definitely hooked!
Great to eat and easy to sprout, although I eat a variety of sprouts my wife seems to only love these over all the rest
Wonderful company with quality products and reasonable prices. We keep coming back, again and again and...
