10-15 days. Wheatgrass, also called ?Liquid Sunshine?, contains an abundance of nutrients. The seeds, also known as hard winter wheat berries, germinate rapidly into beautiful greens that can be juiced; the juice is packed with vitamins and minerals! Be sure to reserve some seeds from the packet to sow for lush greenery in a pretty container, and create a decorative table centerpiece (especially to nestle eggs in at Easter!).
Days to Emerge:
Please note: Only the juice of wheatgrass should be consumed. The grass itself is not digestible by humans. Use a wheatgrass juicer to extract juice. Grass blades will clog normal juicing machines, food processors and blenders.
This packet plants 24 square inches or one 6" container.
Harvesting: Harvest wheatgrass with scissors after it is a few inches tall (7-10 days after sowing.) Harvest before height of 8"; when taller, plants lose nutrition. After initial harvest, you can get a second, and possibly a third crop if soil is enriched.
