Leek Microgreens Seeds

General Information about Leek Microgreens

Leek microgreens belong to the allium vegetable family, closely related to garlic, onions, shallots, and scallions. As other micro herbs we can treat them and superfoods, as they contain a unique combination of flavonoids and sulfur-containing nutrients, with a nutrient profile boasting tens of beneficial compounds. Very popular with restaurant chefs, leek microgreens add a mild onion flavor and visual appeal to any dish.

How do Leek microgreens Taste and Look?

Leek microgreens have a mild onion and garlic-like flavor, but it is not overpowering. However because of the onion-garlic similarities we recommend not to set important date just after consumption. 

These microgreens are visually appealing. With a thin, long and green stem, ended with black pearl-looking seed, every shoot is adding a touch of elegance to culinary creations. 

How to Grow Leek Shoots Fast and Easy?

Can you grow leeks as microgreens? Yes, you can grow leeks as microgreens. 

Follow below steps for fast and easy cultivation:

  1. Preparation: Unlike traditional planting, remember that microgreen seeds are not buried in the soil. Spread the seeds generously across the soil surface in a tray with drain holes. Tamp down the soil and moisten it evenly.
  2. Sowing density for a traditional 10x20 tray is 50 grams. 
  3. Blackout Period: Place a second tray on top, add a small weight, and initiate a blackout period for 6-8 days.
  4. Germination: Leek microgreens germinate slowly, taking 6-8 days. Once they collectively push up the weight, remove the cover and introduce them to delicate light. They grow perfectly in shade when grown outside.
  5. Watering: Use the bottom-watering method to keep the soil moist. Initially, sprinkle from the top to provide high humidity, which helps produce nice-looking stems.
  6. Harvesting: Harvest your micro chives when they are 2 inches long for optimal texture, flavor, and nutritional content. Leek microgreens often retain seed hulls, which are edible, but can be removed by lightly brushing your palm across them. We recommend leaving them as they give a unique look.
  7. Storage: Store the seeds in cold conditions, preferably in your fridge. For better storage, let the sprouts grow an extra half day after the final sorting rinse before refrigerating.
