Micro Mini Greens are the most exciting new development in vegetables in quite a while, and we are pleased to make this premium mix of red and green lettuce varieties available while quantities last. Sow them indoors or in containers for super-quick crops of nutrition-packed, tender, delicious greens so tiny you can sprinkle them on top of salads and sandwiches for a big nutrient punch!
It’s easier to say what micro mini greens are NOT than to define what they are. They aren’t sprouts — these are leaves as well as stems, and this collection contains the full range of colors, textures, and flavors. Nor are they baby greens — they will not “grow up” to be any bigger than you see them at 15 days. They are simply a complete vegetable in miniature form, and they pack an astonishing 6 times the nutrient value of full-sized lettuce leaves.
In this collection you will have smooth and curly varieties in all shades of green and red. The flavor is, again, not like a sprout but even more tender and vibrant than baby lettuce. We have tried them on everything from cracker spreads to cold soups to cooked vegetables of all kind — they are terrific added at the last moment, the way you might sprinkle cheese or herbs as a finishing touch. Yet they are not a garnish — too flavorful for that!
Start these micro minis as you would any lettuce seeds, sowing in rows in a container indoors or out, or beneath an Easy Tunnel or other protection outdoors. You probably won’t have to thin them at all — it’s just a question of how densely you want them to grow! They can be grown year-round indoors, and are a cool-season crop outside, best in spring and fall in all climates as well as winter farther south and west.
Quick, easy, and delicious — we can’t say enough good things about Micro Mini Lettuces! You will adore this collection, and we suggest that you order early and in multiple packets if you want year-long crops. This item is bound to sell out quickly.
