Great source of protein and an excellent source of vitamins B6, and E, calcium, iron, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, and dietary fiber.
Customers most agreed on the following:
Adored by Humans, my chickens love them too. So do Bearded-Dragons as a regular customer of mine will attest. Parrots? Parakeets? Snakes? Gerbils? Why not? These Google out as the most nutritious micro-green going. I load my green smoothies with them.
I observed that this type of sunflower seeds SF6W (Product of italy) did not sprout as evenly as the other type of sunflower seed I purchsed before (sf6b). I plant my seeds on fiber mats as microgreens. With the SF6B, I would have consistent germination and very good harvest,. Seeds will sprout at the same time all the time. With these seeds (sf6w), I would say only about 50% would sprout and grow successfully as microgreens. Have sowed this type of seeds three times (same batch) now but always end up with the same bad results. I don't know if I just got a bad batch of seeds or if the SF6B are just easier to grow.
I have sprouted sunflower seeds twice now, the first time adding too many seeds to the sproutmaster. The second time was better because I used a single layer.
super fresh taste , pretty sprouts on top of a regular salad and good for you
Pleasantly surprised you could eat sunflowers as a microgreen. Definitely want to make sure you eat them within the 10-14 day period, before they get bitter, They have a nice sweet nutty taste to them :)
love this green food , on everything, easy to grow
I've bought these for years with no problem, but the latest batch is unusable. I soak for four hours and then layout on soil under pressure in the dark. In three days the seeds are covered in a while furry fungus that destroys them. I have tried washing the seeds strongly, sterilizing all equipment. Everything. Can I get a replacement from a different sources?
First attempt was to grow in a small tray, in a 1/2" of potting medium. Grew very well. Took the tray as an appie to neighbors with two young children. The children devoured the tray, cutting each sprout and eating, almost like it was a candy. A sweet, most enjoyable taste. I agree with other reviewer, tastes really good at first leaves. Next, tried growing in a bit of water. Didn't work for me, threw out. I will stick to the soil method...and enjoy!
Seeds arrived almost before I remembered ordering them. Is this because Canada Post is so great? Not sure. More likely the staff at Mumms is on it. Thanks - this is the beginning of a great relationship.
My favorite. Crunchy leaves. Takes some time but totally worth it. You should choose a container big enough so the seeds are not to squeezed together.
