Botanical Name: Medicago sativa subsp. sativa

Family: Fabaceae

Native: Asia

Harvesting: Enjoy alfalfa sprouts when the small leaves turn green, usually 4 to 6 days after starting. Alfalfa sprouting seeds have hulls (the outer seed covering), which can loosen during soaking and rinsing. Although the hulls are edible, you may choose to remove them for better sprout flavor, or to reduce the chance of mold due to excess moisture. To separate the hulls, empty your sprouts into a large bowl and fill it with cool water. Move the sprouts around in the water disentangling the sprouts and loosening the hulls, which will float to the top. The hulls can then be skimmed or poured off. Remove any unsprouted seeds at this time, too. Rinse the sprouts once more and drain thoroughly so they are dry to the touch. (Excessive moisture reduces sprouts' storage life.) Your sprouts are then ready to eat or store.

Botanical Interests has the largest selection of sprouting seeds I have come by. I have a hard time finding alfalfa sprouts in the supermarket. I always have some of these going on my kitchen counter. Absolutely the freshest harvest.

Sprouting sprouts in the kitchen

5 out of 5 stars Oct 31, 2021
Winter in our part of Oregon isn't all that cold, but this far north it's a lot dark. Having sprouts growing on my windowsill gives me hope for spring -- and lots of extremely lovely veg for sandwiches and salads. These are absolutely the best seeds I've used for sprouts -- kinda like King Arthur flour for bread. And the lovely gift seeds that came with my sorta big order kept bees happy all summer.
