We have some exciting news, fellow AeroGardeners! We have just launched our very first MicroGreens Kit for the
Harvest & Harvest Elite AeroGardens. 

Our new MicroGreens kit can grow 2 different varieties of MicroGreens at once, and with the powerful grow lights, they’ll be ready to eat in just a few days!

MicroGreens are up to 40 times more nutritious than mature plants, so you get a nutrient-dense punch when you add them to your smoothies, salads or as a finishing touch on just about any savory dish. And now, they’re even easier to grow at home when you add the AeroGarden MicroGreens Kit to your AeroGarden Harvest model (not included). Just replace your Harvest’s standard grow deck with the MicroGreens irrigation deck and trays, place the AeroFelt grow media and add MicroGreens seeds. Add the included Grow Domes and you’re set! You’ll be ready to eat these flavorful, vitamin-packed greens in as few as 7 days! Grow all of your favorites (spicy MicroGreens, Bean Sprouts, Wheatgrass and more) for just pennies per serving, all year long. Always fresh, always safe and always in season!

What are Microgreens? 

Microgreens are vegetables or herbs that are harvested just after they’ve sprouted and produced their first set
of true leaves.

They taste great!
Adding microgreens to any
meal can improve the dish with
color, nutritional value, and
added flavor. 

 They are highly nutritious!
Studies have suggested that
microgreens are nutrient-dense,
being a good source of essential
minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants.
Many microgreens are four to six times higher in vitamins and antioxidants than the fully grown plant, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine

 

 

 

Microgreens grow extremely fast.

Harvest in just 7 days!

Did you know? 

Growing the rainbow of colored microgreens helps target different things.  Different colors of vegetables represent different healthy compounds called phytochemicals, as well as other micronutrients.

  • Red vegetables contain lycopene, which is a powerful antioxidant.
  • Orange and yellow vegetables contain carotenoids like beta carotene and lutein, which the body converts into vitamin A.
  • Blue and purple vegetables contain anthocyanin which can help protect cells from damage.
  • Green vegetables contain a wide range of different phytochemicals including saponins, indoles, and carotenoids.
  • Brown and white vegetables like garlic contain allicin which has antibacterial properties.
