Notes & Growing Tips: Buckwheat microgreens are very easy to grow but only in soil.  Growing buckwheat micro greens is very difficult hydroponically and we don't recommend it.  You can also grow buckwheat greens from hulled raw seeds, but the germination rate is very low.  With whole (shell intact) buckwheat microgreen seeds, the germination rate is extremely high.  This 12 Oz. bag of whole buckwheat microgreen seeds is premeasured for planting in our 21" x 11" tray.  Soak seeds in cold water for half a day to a day, rinse well, then spread over the soil.  To prepare the soil, tamp it gently to flatten.  Spread the buckwheat seeds evenly (they should be quite thick) and tamp very gently to insure contact with the soil.  Mist thoroughly twice a day.  Keep covered with the blackout / humidity dome for 3 to 4 more days before exposing light.  Water once a day so the soil is damp but not soggy.  Rinse thoroughly and take care to remove all the shells before drying and serving.

Buckwheat greens are delicate and pale green with a tangy flavor.  They make and excellent snack and your kids will even try to sneak them!

Please note that some have expressed concerns about eating large quantities of buckwheat greens.
