Nasturtiums are all the rage with their beautiful edible flowers gracing so many dishes and salads. But did you know that the little stems and flowers are also edible. Known earlier as "Indian Cress" the edible plant had the peppery flavor of cress.
Nasturtium also have medicinal uses as the microgreens have a high content of Vit C and iron, while the leaves also have antibiotic properties that peak before the plant flowers. Because of these properties, the inclusion of these nasturtium microgreens can help with things like sore throats, common colds and bacterial and fungal infections.
Our Nasturtium Microgreen Kit is available now.
Taking our original SIP design, Linesh Pillai from Urban Green Fate Farms in India has engineered a breakthrough product for microgreen growing. The product has been used in schools, institutions, restaurants and high end resorts to provide “zero carbon greens” from seed to fork in 7 to 10 days. No transportation or chemicals so you get guaranteed fresh nutrition, you cannot get any fresher than “grow to eat”.
The “Grow to Eat” kit provides our innovative microgreen growing system (2 piece bottom wicking tray system) and includes 3 sprouting seed packets of our Non GMO Salad Mix (broccoli, kale, arugula, cabbage, kohlrabi and mustard). The growing media is provided by 2 Wonder Soil organic wafers which is enough coir based “soil” for 3 full trays as pictured). The kits are manufactured in India and contain US sourced non GMO seeds and US produced compressed coir Wonder Soil to complete it. We have included a supplemental instruction sheet on the reverse side of the packaging and provide internet based support and help.
One of the biggest hurdles for the microgreen grower is the watering of these tiny plants. Our Grow to Eat kits allow the plants to "sip" the proper amount of water without any work other than keeping water in the lower tray. The kits contain enough supplies to grow three complete trays as pictured. Ready to eat in 7-10 days! Not only the freshest but most nutritionally rich food you can get!
Now available online in our web store and soon in selected stores and distributors. Contact us for more info.
Our new Grow to Eat Microgreen systems are delivering superior nutrition and farm to fork freshness to restaurants in India. The most publicized installation is in the Andaz Delhi's Anna Maya restaurant that now features microgreens grown and harvested right in the restaurant.
This second new installation is for the Olive Bar and Kitchen, Bandra West, Mumbai which is under construction now. The location will feature fresh microgreens grown in this on premise microgreen farm that will showcase our super efficient Grow to Eat Microgreen systems.
We are getting ready for the holiday season and today are proud to introduce our new web store where we will be introducing our SIP grow system in the next few days. Our system will feature our bottom self watering design in an easy to grow system that will take a lot of the uncertainty in growing microgreens. We think these new kits will be the hit of the holiday season!
