Delicious

  • By: SproutPool Verified Buyer from New Westminster, BC CA on August 1, 2016
  • Pros: The Flavor
  • Cons: Only con for me was figuring out which way to grow and the challenges of growing sunflower shoots during this very humid summer. The fuzz was a little worrisome however I was educated on what to do by Lois at Mumm's.
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

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.

Great service, Maybe not the best variety

  • By: Small Farmer Verified Buyer from BC, BC CA on February 25, 2016
  • Pros: The Taste
  • Cons: Uneven germination. Slow to shed shells compared to other varieties.
  • Best uses: As an Ingredient
  • Describe Yourself: Chef

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.

Excellent sprouting rate on this batch (novembre 2015)

  • By: Truchement Verified Buyer from Montreal, QC CA on December 13, 2015
  • Pros: The Taste
  • Cons: Hulls stay connected to sprout.
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

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.

sunflower sprouts

  • By: germinator Verified Buyer from calgary, AB CA on September 18, 2015
  • Pros: The Appearance
  • Cons: inconsistent germination
  • Best uses: As an Ingredient
  • Describe Yourself: DIY`er

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?

Amazing-- no mould!

  • By: Alexis Verified Buyer from Kitchener, CA on January 17, 2016
  • Pros: The Flavor
  • Cons: none
  • Best uses: In a Juice
  • Describe Yourself: DIY`er

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.

Another wonderful microgreen!

  • By: Neil Bixby Verified Buyer from guelph, ON CA on January 14, 2016
  • Pros: The Appearance
  • Cons: Practically no "cons" except to say there may be a learning curve, they can be tricky to grow but once you learn it you'll be glad you did!
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

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.

Loved by ALL Beings

  • By: k8ydid Verified Buyer from Rossland, BC CA on January 8, 2016
  • Pros: The Taste
  • Cons: For people, removing the husks are a bit fiddly. All others don't care.
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

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.
