I first grew the sunflower seeds in the small sprout master but it didn't take root very well. I decided to grow it in soil to test it out and it did way better. Since I'm new to growing microgreens, it's been a challenge to grow sunflower shoots only because I have no experience. I emailed Mumm's and I got a call from Lois right away to explain some of the growing pains I was challenged with. She even emailed me information to reassure me that the challenges I'm facing were normal. This is what I love about Mumm's. Not only are the seeds awesome but the service is exceptional.
Seeds arrived quickly and were very clean. I have been growing sunflower shoots for restaurants for several years. These seeds seem to germinate at a very staggered rate. I am accustom to sunflower seed that germinate together allowing me to harvest them all at one time. These seeds came up very slowly meaning that 1/2 the shoots were ready to harvest while others were just getting going. They were very slow to drop their shells compared to other varieties I have used. I am disappointed with this variety of seed, they are not useful for commercial production.
great product, easy growing, nutritious outcome, make sure to harvest before true leaves appear otherwise the taste changes dramatically
Generally speaking I have had great success with the sunflower seeds sprouting. Did however have one batch (lot #3f3f in a 5kg bag) where my germination rates were horrible. Have you had any other complaints about this batch of seeds?
I really enjoyed my first experience with sunflower seeds. 100% success
I've tried to grow sunflower sprouts in the past but they have always gone mouldy and few have germinated. I tried these in the large sprouter and loved them. They all germinated, were crisp, and best of all they were easy to grow with no mess. I will keep ordering all my sprouting supplies from mumms because everything has worked out so well. I love finding companies I can support and recommend :) They are great juiced, by the way.
It took us a while to learn but now we have abundant quantities of sunflower sprouts (Microgreens) which we use daily, along with our Speckled Pea shoots. WE feel very fortunate to know about these foods and how to grow them.
Sunflower seeds definitely are my favorite sprouts. This batch has an exceptional sprouting rate, so it's worth every penny. Once they have sprouted, however, they take a bit longer to really open up in the sun. Also, the hulls need to be removed by hand.
Sunflower greens are amazing! I grow them all the time but in the winter a big salad of sunnies apples and celery just cannot be beat. We love to grab a handful as a snack.
Easy to sprout and grew quickly. I kept them in a jar in the dark. I think I left them too long because they grew long hairy roots but I still used the. Just cut the ends off and put them in my smoothly. I'm satisfied!
