“Shoots” and “micro-greens” are the first growth of young and tender plants harvested before reaching full maturity. They are generally 2-6 inches long and have a few baby leaves and maybe a budding flower. They taste like their mature counterpart- but have a very delicate texture and crunch. Micro-greens and shoots are eaten raw, sauteed, or used as a garnish on dishes served hot or cold. Learn all about little greens in season now on the Adirondack Almanack.
