Other than their beautiful appearance, our April Sun micro salad mix punnets include a variety of microgreens that are overflowing with nutrients and vitamins.

Here is a list of our fresh produce that's harvested daily, to help you identify what's in your April Sun punnet.

 

Amaranth

Amaranth microgreens have vibrant reddish pink stems, deep red leaves with a dash of green.

They are beautiful microgreens that are usually used to garish dishes, however, these earthy flavoured micros are high packed with vitamin K, vitamin C, and many phytosterols - aiding in the prevention of some cancers and heart-related diseases.

Rocket

Rocket, or Arugula, microgreens are a key addition in our Spicy Salad Micro Mix as they have a uniquely strong peppery flavour.

Rocket microgreens are also a superb source of nutrients, having up to six times more vitamin C than their mature vegetable and a 5:1 ratio of vitamin A. Read more about the health benefits and try our Spicy Salad Micro Mix today.

 

Beet

Beet microgreens have a rich earthy beetroot flavour, and like their mature vegetable counterpart, can "bleed" some red colour into your food. They have vibrant red stems and soft green leaves, which are like all other microgreens, packed full of nutrients.

In addition to containing vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin E and beta-carotene, beet microgreens are high in antioxidants, and have anti-inflammatory and detox properties.

Broccoli

Broccoli microgreens are an excellent source of nutrients and high in sulforaphane, which is the compound that gives a hint of a bitterness - supporting cardiovascular health and brain function, and containing anti-aging and anti-carcinogenic properties.
