The microgreens are often referred to as buckwheat lettuce for their fresh, lettuce-like flavour.
Consumption of very large amounts of buckwheat greens as juice has been linked to temporary photosensitization of skin. Until more information is available, we recommend moderate use.
Good source of vitamin B6, iron, calcium, magnesium, chlorophyll, and essential amino acids

These are growing well on my hemp mats and they are mild - making a good contrast to the more peppery microgreens.
Grow easily. Good flavor. I add to smoothies too for delicious greens
This is so easy to grow. I like it best grown in soil. First I sprout until there are small white tails on the seeds..spread it over an inch of soil and make sure it's nice and wet. Cover it until it's about an inch tall and spray it with water twice a day. Uncover and let it grow. I will never buy lettuce again.
This is my favourite of all the microgreens I have tried so far. They grow nice and tall, they are very pretty (love those dark pink stems), and they are so tender. Great in sandwiches and salads or wilted on top of hot dishes. I have many digestive issues and cannot tolerate lettuces of any kind, so finding this is sheer heaven. I plant small trays often so that I can always keep a few on the kitchen table where we can snip of portions to add to our meals as desired: the buckwheat disappears faster than any other type of microgreen in our house.
Great selection and fast delivery. Will order from Mumm's again.
