Microgreens are young, tender, edible crops that are harvested as seedlings. Second only to sprouts, microgreens are the quickest food crop budding urban farmers can grow. These leafy greens are grown to the first true leaf stage, when the cotyledon leaves mature.

They are typically used as a nutrition supplement, a visual enhancement, and a way to add flavour and texture to a dish. Among your more upscale grocers and restaurants they are considered a specialty type of greens, good for garnishing salads, soups, sandwiches, or just about any other dish.

Microgreens are also a great source of very concentrated nutrients including vitamins, minerals and plant compounds like antioxidants. In fact, research comparing microgreens to more mature greens reports that nutrient levels in microgreens can be up to nine times higher than those found in mature greens. This is because microgreens are harvested at a very early stage of their growth when the plants are at their nutritional peak.

Overall, incorporating microgreens into your diet can help support a healthy and more balanced diet.

This Mod-U-Grow Microgreen System will enable you to grow your own healthy and nutritious plants in as little as 1 to 2 weeks, depending on the variety of plants you are growing.

The Mod-U-Grow countertop microgreen system has been designed to simplify the process of growing your own microgreens and can be placed anywhere in the home that has an abundance of light. The frame has 2 levels and can accommodate 4 different growing trays, so you’ll never be short of space to grow a broad selection of nutritious and tasty microgreens.

The kit comes with 3 different seed varieties to get you up and running, but there are a number of other varieties that are readily available online of at your nearest nursery, to get more creative with.

The system is sold as a complete kit with everything you need to get you up and running. There is a choice of either a white or black pipe frame system to support the green grow trays.

The system has been designed so you can water the plants from above with a spray bottle, or from below by pouring water onto the plastic shelves holding the grow trays, and letting it get absorbed up through the drain holes in the bottom of the grow trays.
