Adzuki sprouts look much like Mung beans but
they have a reddish-brown seed hull. They grow
to be 2-3 cm long incl the white root.
The seed hull stays on the bean during the
first few days. After 3-4 days of sprouting, the hulls
fall off and the sprouts are white with a pale yellow
or sometimes slightly reddish tint.
The white tip should grow untill it is only the same
length as the bean to be ready for 'harvest'. This
cute white tip often protrudes in very artistic forms.
