You don’t have to, but you can.

Nevertheless, you might feel more comfortable washing your microgreens. Just make sure to take into account these tips:

  • Wash microgreens right before eating them. If you wash them and store them in your fridge, you will substantially reduce their shelf life.
  • Be gentle when you wash them. Some microgreens are very fragile. We recommend rinsing them lightly with cold water. You can dry them by patting them gently with a clean towel or using a salad spinner.

Some microgreens still have the hull of their seed attached to one of the leaves. In general, this is not a problem. In the case of Cilantro, this actually adds flavour. However, for some varieties, the seed hull can be bitter and/or hard to chew. This is the case for Sunflower.

Yes, they are 100% edible. However, if you prefer not to eat them, that’s fine. Sometimes, our microgreens have roots attached due to our manual harvesting process, and although we try our best not to include roots, sometimes a few manage to slip in.

From a nutritional point of view, it is best to eat them sooner than later. From a flavour perspective, the microgreens stay perfectly fresh for at least ten days if you keep them stored in an airtight container (like our stainless-steel boxes) in your fridge between 1 and 4 °C.

Microgreens are tiny versions of their grown counterparts. If you are allergic to the full-grown plant, there is a chance you are also allergic to its microgreen version.
