Micro-greens are standard component of the weekly baskets and are contained in one of the plastic bags you receive. These marvelous, delicate, micro-vegetables are full of flavour and  contain lots of healthy nutrients.

We are in the process of dramatically changing the micro-greens so that they are different every week. Instead of a mix of various ingredients, our customers will now receive only one variety of micro-greens each week which will change with every delivery. Let us know what you think of this change.

    I find that these greens do not last very long. They tend to get soggy and turn bitter.

    Any particular info for care other than eat them quickly?

    Does anyone else have problems with their micro-greens turning slimey very quickly in the fridge? Any storage tips to prevent this?

    Many of our customers confuse the smell of “cabbage” (an ingredient in the mix)as an indication that the micro-greens have gone “off.” Actually,the micro-greens store very well in your frig and can last five days or more. But they are a component of the basket which should be consumed within three days for optimum flavour.

    We’ve been impressed with how long they keep compared to the greens we used to get from Loblaws. One of my favourite parts about the greens is that even if I hoard them until the next delivery day (a full seven days) I haven’t yet had to pick through the leaves to find the one or two good leaves left. Maybe it is a fridge temperature issue? I think we keep ours relatively cool if that helps.

    It hasn’t happened often that we have them too long though because they tend to get eaten…

    I have found that putting a section of paper towel on the top of the microgreens inside the “clamshell” container works for me and will keep the wetness at bay for an extra day or two. I used to find that they got very wet-looking quickly, and so I have just made it a point to make sure I use those first out of all the lettuces. The pea shoots will last an extremely long time.

    If you like Vietnamese spring rolls (summer rolls), the raw kind with rice paper, BF microgreens are perfect ingredients. One part cilantro to two parts microgreens is usually good, but you can go as high as one-to-one. Wrap it with scallion or young onion, shredded or julienned carrot, finely sliced bok choy, and some cold shrimp or shredded cold chicken if you like, and dip it in a dipping sauce. They are so wonderful if the day is warm and you don’t want to turn on the oven–it’s salad you can eat with your fingers.

    I discovered the Frigsmart series of Tupperware. They are good to store all of my vegetables but I find the small square ones to be particularly great for the microgreen. I get them to last a little longer in there.
    The mixed green keep longer in those as well.

    store your micro greens in a glass jar it will keep the humidity down, the lower the better they will last for weeks wash and makes sure they are very dry before putting in the jar most produce needs a high humidity to keep fresh not so for micro greens
