    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.

    I bought only a 4 pound can (i think it was), and I have to say that buckwheat lettuce is hands down my favorite micro-green. I always thought of sunflower spouts as my favorite but the buckwheat lettuce has this super lush, delicate texture when you take a bite. It really just melts in your mouth and the flavor is absolutely purrrr-fect.

    And when I generously fill a tray with buckwheat spouts, I end up with a very full consistently dense mat of greens....so I'm noticing that there is a very high germination rate.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! Thanks for the very punctual delivery as well! I plan on ordering the biggest bucket you have. Thanks!!!
