2,30 € – 37,40 €
Coriander is native to North Africa, but is especially widespread in the East, where it is used in a lot of recipes for seasoning and flavouring. In recent years, it has also become very popular in its microgreens version. Why? Because these seedlings have a fresh and slightly citrusy flavour, like the adult plant, but contain many more nutrients and have a rather simple growth process.
The organic seeds of Green Coriander, botanical name Coriandrum sativum, have a bit longer growing period than other varieties, but the result you get will be worth the wait. In fact, they produce small, bright green leaves that resemble tiny blades of grass. Thanks to their fresh and spicy, slightly citrusy taste, they are a beautiful choice to look at and good to eat.
How can I grow it?
Producing green Coriander microgreens requires a little patience, but with a few little tricks and a little waiting you will get a great result.
Before proceeding with soaking and sowing, we recommend storing the seed in the refrigerator for a couple of days. This step will reawaken the Coriander’s germinative will, allowing you to get a quicker and more uniform harvest.
After removing the seeds from the fridge, soak the organic Coriander in cold water for 6/8 hours. Then drain them well and plant them in soil or a substrate, place them in the dark and wait for the first shoots to sprout, watering sparingly and often.
Once germinated, move your organic Coriander sprouts into the sunlight, continuing to spray until, after 25/28 days, the microgreens are ready to be harvested.
How can I eat it?
Organic Green Coriander microgreens are a natural and super-healthy flavouring. For this reason, we recommend using them as an alternative to the adult plant in all recipes that call for it, in order to add flavour to soups, side dishes and meat or fish dishes, enriching them not only with taste, but also with well-being.
Organic Coriander seeds may contain traces of soy, mustard, wheat, gluten, and graminaceous plants.
Store seeds in a cool, ventilated place, with temperature between 8° and 20° C, away from weather, changes in humidity and sunlight.
