These 5-day sprouts are similar to red clover but with larger seeds and sprouts. Crimson Clover has a mild-sweet flavour.
- Days to Sprout 4 to 5
- Soak Time 4-8 hours
- Yield 1 tbsp of dry seed yields approx. 1.5 – 2 cups of sprouts.
- Storage Our seeds should sprout well for a year after you purchase them, if stored in a cool dry place. If you’d like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer, they’ll last even longer!
Soak: Put 1-2 Tbsp. seed in a wide mouth jar with a sprouting lid. Add water, swirl, and drain. Refill jar with water and soak 4-12 hours. Drain well and invert jar at an angle on a sprouting or draining rack, or in a bowl or drain rack.
Rinse: Twice a day, refill jar with cold water, swirl, and drain well.
Enjoy! Ready to eat in 5 days. Refrigerate to store. (Sprouts store best when they are fairly dry.)
Some sprouts tend to clump together as they grow. To separate, fill the jar with water, remove the screen and stir gently with a fork during the regular rinse. Remove hulls if desired. Drain well.
The drier they are the better sprouts keep. Be sure to let sprouts grow another half day after the final sorting rinse before storing in the fridge. Optional: put folded paper towel on top of the sprouts in the jar. Put lid on and refrigerate turned upside down. This removes excess moisture.
If your home is very warm during the summer months, it may help to rinse the sprouts three times a day with cold water. Stir gently if clumping.
To remove the hulls and unsprouted seeds from leafy sprouts, use a special sorting rinse. Pull sprouts out of the jar into a large bowl filled with water. Swish gently to separate the tangled roots. Most hulls will separate and rise or sink. Discard the hulls. Collect the sprouts back to the jar with or without aid of a strainer. Return sprouts to jar, drain, and continue sprouting for another half a day or so.

very easy to grow and so yummy. the small package was the only one available when I purchased and I will definitely buy this one again
Reasonably priced, easy to grow and tastes good. I’m glad it’s back in stock!
I find that Crimson Clover is one of the most versatile seeds to sprout. It grows fast and can be eaten fresh or added to soups and stews. If I was able to sprout only one type it would be clover.
Very similar to Red Clover/Alfalfa but the seeds and sprouts are slightly larger.
Surprisingly juicy as a microgreen with a pleasant and subtle clover taste. The end product is remarkable with its distinctive appearance and vibrant green color thick leaves. The germination rate is near perfect and grows fast to its harvest time.
These sprouts are several times larger than red clover and alfalfa. I mix 1/3 each of Crimson Clover, Red Clover and Alfalfa and use that mix instead of a single seed. I like the wider nutrition represented by the 3 different seeds and the larger Crimson Clover gives the mix slightly more body, which I like.
This is one of my staples. I use it in salads and sandwiches. During the winter I use it instead of lettuce since it greens-up very well near a window. It’s similar to alfalfa in taste and texture, so I like to combine the two in hopes of diversifying the nutritional content.
Crimson Clover is a special find. It can be used for micro-greens or sprouts. It works great with fenugreek, small red lentils and a a bit of red radish for spice and colour. (use less seed than usual because the sprouts are bigger and take up more room in the jar.) I love it when crimson clover is available.
passion for sprouts –
They are finally back in stock! Crimson Clover is crunchy and has a mild flavour. It is my favourite and whenever I share them with others they love them just as much. Excellent seed quality, they sprout very quickly. Ideal for a beginner or for children. Eat just as is, add to salads or sandwiches. Whichever way, they are absolutely delicious
These sprouts have a very mild clover flavor that is quite unique. They are great on their own or added to salads. They also work well when blended with other seeds such as alfalfa. The vibrant green leaves are most attractive!

Using the clover and alfalfa as a cover crop for my outdoor and indoor gardens with great success.
Cover crops supply nutrients, suppress weeds, and improve water availability.
Clover and alfalfa are a great choice.
I have used Mumm`s seeds for almost 20 years and absolutely LOVE them. I can`t get over the quality and viability of them. My last purchase of these seeds were still 70% viable at 9 years old! I highly recommend Mumm`s seeds to anyone who values quality in a food item.

Excellent germ rate and good yields from 20g seed density on a 1020 tray using hemp media. I grow to true leaf stage which takes about 3 weeks but it can be harvested smaller at 12-14 days.
Excellent for helping me reach my preparedness needs.
