SPROUTS IN THE RIGHT SIZE

Some sprouts need only have a small white tip.
Others must be cultivated till they unfold their first small leaves.
Two types can even be grown to both tip and leaf.
 

LITTLE WHITE TIP

A small white tip means, the seed has only just developed
a small tail or tip of 1-2 cm. This tip has no leaves nor show
signs of leaf at the end of the tip.
 
These sprouts are grown only to a tip:
 
Red lentils    Green lentils    Mung beans
 
Chickpeas         Peas          Grain
 


SPROUTS WITH LEAVES

Sprouts with the leaves means that the seed has grown
a long stem and at the end of the stem has formed its
first small, elegant leaves.
 
These sprouts are cultivated to leaf state:
 
Broccoli    Fenugreek    Endive    Fennel    Cress
 
Daikon    Red/White clover    Alfalfa    Rape
 
Pink kale    Radish    Rucola    Cabbage
 
Mustard    Sunflower
 

EITHER TIP OR LEAF

The sprouts mentioned above should always be grown
to the recommended length. However two kinds of sprouts
may be cultured either for sprouts or leaves.
 
These two 'multifunctional' sprouts are:
 
Corn     Peas
 
You can grow those either to filling corn sprouts or till they
form long, thin, green liquorice-flavored maize leaves.
The peas may be grown to sweet pea sprouts
or into delicious,organic pea shoots.
 
 

TOO LONG SPROUTS

Have you let the sprouts grow too long, so they have
leaves even though they should only have had a tip?
 
Your organic sprouting seeds are completely natural seeds.
Therefore, you can choose to put the sprout in a pot with soil
and grow them further until they become a fully grown plant.
