What's the difference between microgreens and sprouts?

August 07, 2020

Sprouts are the first visible stage of germination & microgreens are the next stage (after the first set of cotyledons and sometimes true leaves show, but before the second set). Sprouts take under a week to grow while microgreens take around 7-21 days, depending on the variety. Unlike microgreen seeds, sprout seeds are grown in water and need to be rinsed twice a day to ensure that they do not mold.
