Microgreens, not to be confused with sprouts, are essentially the edible seedlings of vegetables and herbs harvested just after the development of cotyledon leaves and usually before or just after the first set of true leaves. On a growth spectrum, Microgreens are more developed than sprouts but less developed than baby greens. Microgreens are popular with chefs and health-conscious eaters because of their nutritional variation and density, diversity of flavours and textures, as well as their brilliant colours.
