Benefits

Yield

 Alfalfa

 

High in fibre, vitamins, minerals and proteins.

A fairly quiet, nutty flavour. Good for blending with other sprouts of strong flavour. Excellent for salads, omelettes and sandwiches. All these sprouts are many times more nutritious if exposed to the sunlight about the fifth day after germination.

Research has found Alfalfa fibre pushes cholesterol out of the arteries while its saponins  dissolve it.

500 seeds per gram - 1gram of seed will produce 10g of sprouts.

 Curled Cress

  

High in fibre, vitamins, minerals and proteins.

Also known as Pepper Grass, this spicy Brassica is, in flavor, something like Watercress. There is no other flavor quite like the Cress'. They are fantastic! It is a very fast grower which (since it is muciloginous) must not be soaked when grown alone. It will become a necessary ingredient in your sprout kitchen.

Watch your crop grow - in just 5-7 days - into one of the most intensely flavorful greens you've ever experienced!

 

 Green Broccoli

 

Famous for it's antioxidant content. High in fibre, vitamins, minerals and proteins.

Distinctive Broccoli taste.  They are wonderfully tender and tasty - especially if you like broccoli.  Broccoli sprouts contain something like 50 times the sulfurophane found in mature broccoli, by weight. Harvest at 5 days when sprouts are 2.5cm long.

Contain a chemical called sulforaphane that is an effective anticancer agent and kills the bacteria responsible for most stomach cancer and ulcers.

300 seeds per gram - 1 gram of seed will produce 8g of sprouts.

 Red Clover

 

Red clover is also a wonderful source of essential oils, amino acids, vitamins and minerals that relax the nervous system and settle the stomach.

Almost identical to Alfalfa in flavour - nutty and mild, but with a lighter green leaf. Good in sprout mixes. We prefer Clover to Alfalfa as it sheds its hulls better and lasts longer in the fridge - as a sprout.

Red Clover contains four isoflavones common in the Asian diet, thought to be the reason why Asian men have a lower incidence of prostate cancer.

550 seeds per gram - 1 gram of seed will produce 7g of sprouts.

 Daikon Radish

 

Full of vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and minerals. 

A crisp long white sprout that is spicy and slightly hot but milder than other radishes. Excellent in salads, soups and sandwiches. Vigorous and easy to grow. A Radish seed produces a sprout - in 4 days - which though tiny, has ALL of the flavour (and a far superior texture) of a full grown radish.

 

100 seeds per gram - 1 gram of seed will produce 8g of sprouts.

 Onion

 

Bursting with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and rich in chlorophyll..

Easy to digest with a sweet onion flavour. Onion seeds have the shortest shelf life of any sprouting seed. Since they are also expensive we suggest that you freeze your seed. Prefers warmer conditions than other seeds to sprout and also takes 7 days to break dormancy with a further week to mature. The black seed coat can hang on tenaciously to the sprout head at times, so eat it anyway. Although more expensive than some sprouts-well worth it.

Known to purify and detoxify the liver and bloodstream.

350 seeds per gram - 1 gram of seed will produce 6g of sprouts.

 Black Mustard

 

High level of antioxidants such as Sulphoraphone and Glutathiones.

Hot and spicy, high health, non-gelatinous sprout. All the benefits of the other Crucifer types like Radish, Red Cabbage and Green Broccoli.

Black Mustard has been recognized in numerous studies to reduce the rate of colon, bladder and lung cancers. Also enhances the biological barriers of the body to cancer development.

400 seeds per gram - 1 gram of seed will produce 9g sprouts.

Alfalfa 40%, Flax 10%, Rocket 10%, Black Mustard 10%, Crimson Clover 20%, Fennel 10%

A tasty, aromatic and invigorating blend.  As the Flax and Rocket are both mucilagenous forming seeds when germinating, particular care needs to be shown to rinse and drain well in the first few days. At harvest (6-7 days), the Fennel sprout will not be as developed as the others but both its seed husk and sprout should be used.

Stimulates the digestive system.

 Mung Beans

 

 

 

Mung Bean Sprouts are most commonly seen big and thick rooted. They are very common in Chinese and other Asian cuisines.
Most commercial Mung Beans are grown with chemicals and gasses in huge 500 gallon machines.
You will likely never get your home grown sprouts to look like those you see at a restaurant or supermarket. However, yours will be fresher & more nutritous.
