  • Description

    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 Quality

  • By: Ugrowgirl Verified Buyer from Edmonton, AB CA on March 3, 2016
  • Pros: The Flavor
  • Cons: none - I buy these regularly.
  • Best uses: As an Ingredient
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

I use buckwheat as a short sprout, rather than as a lettuce. It producecs delightful sprouts in a couple days, which make a delicious addition to chewy oat sprouts (I often sprout them together, sometimes with sunflower seeds). It is also great as a short sprout on a salad. The hulls add texture. They are also good blended with liquid, and added to batters, where they add that specific delicious buckwheat flavor and a pleasing black speckle and some texture to muffins biscuits and pancakes.

I was so glad to find a Canadian source for buckwheat sprouting seeds. They arrived quickly by mail and so far have been very easy to grow. Delicious on their own or in a mix or even as a garnish.

I grow buckwheat as microgreens. It was my first time with buckwheat from Mumm's. Wow, these are amazing! Much better than seeds purchased in local store. I was totally amazed with how vigorous these are. Highly recommended!

Great Quality

  • By: FuriousT Verified Buyer from MONTRÉAL, QC CA on November 19, 2018
  • Pros: The Taste
  • Cons: Roots/baby blanket always smell awful by the time I cut the sprouts down.
  • Best uses: As an Ingredient
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

Great! Easy to sprout and tasty. The only thing with these is they get a skanky smell no matter how often I rinse clean water through them, maybe that's normal for buckwheat.
