Broccoli sprouts contain higher levels of the cancer-fighting, phytochemical sulforaphane glucosinolate than mature heads of broccoli, while also contributing vitamins A, C, and E, calcium, and fiber to the diet. Extremely versatile in the kitchen, tangy broccoli sprouts will perk up almost any dish—fresh or cooked.

Botanical Name: Brassica oleracea var. italica

Days to Maturity: 6–9 days

Family: Brassicaceae

Native: Europe

Special Instructions: Good air circulation is important to help prevent fungal disease. If using a fan, avoid aiming the fan directly at the growing medium as it may dry the medium quickly; instead, bounce the airflow off a neighboring wall or the ceiling to create air movement in the general area.

Harvesting: Enjoy broccoli sprouts when they have small, green leaves, usually 6 to 9 days after starting. Broccoli seed germination is naturally erratic, and you may find some seeds do not germinate before others are ready to harvest. Some 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.

Pandemic Panic

5 out of 5 stars Sep 27, 2020
I purchased these seeds in March as part of my pandemic panic about where and if I'd be able to get fresh vegetables. I was relieved to be able to successfully grow sprouts until greens started coming up in the garden. Now as the garden winds down I look forward to coming back to growing sprouts to spice up the drab dark days of winter - very reliable seeds -

Poor Broccoli Sprouts

2 out of 5 stars Oct 1, 2020
I have used your seeds for years...but my last batch (Lott 29103 packed for 2020, and my order was #133154) only sprouted about 50 % of the seeds. I sent you an e-mail , to let you know. I was very disappointed, and asked for a replacement. I did not hear back. Thank you , Rebecca

I have ordered many packets of your sprouts and unfortunately, I'm mostly left with seeds. Very few sprouts. It has happened so often that now I'm just buying sprouts.

Owner Response: Hi Nancy, Broccoli in particular has staggered germination (seeds do not germinate at once) and the lingering seeds may take more time to germinate. a customer service agent will be contacting you to help.

Very unhappy

I have tried several times to sprout these (Lot # 32780) since I bought two packets hoping to have lots of microgreens during the pandemic. No luck really as only 5-10 % sprouted and then didn't grow. Very very disappointed.

Owner Response: Hi Susan, We are sorry you had difficulty with this product. A customer service agent will be emailing you to help. Broccoli has naturally erratic germination and doesn't germinate all at the same time which requires some patience. Rest assured our seeds are tested frequently by a third-party laboratory to ensure our seeds meet federal and our own high-quality germination standards.

Easy to grow and delicious

Purchased the seeds while vacationing in Utah. Just finished sprouting my second batch. Very tasty sprout and in my opinion superior to the ones you buy in the grocery store.

Broccoli sprout tips

4 out of 5 stars Jan 26, 2023
I noticed that some people said they had trouble sprouting their seeds... Here are some things to experiment with: I like to sanitize my seeds, but I've found that the vinegar method greatly decreases germination. Ye olde bleach solution that I wash off after 15 minutes seems to not harm germination rates. Also, I had much better germination and more robust growth of my broccoli seeds if I used a jar with a perforated lid, rather than the plastic sprouting box. No idea why this would be, but broccoli seems fussier than other types of sprouting seeds. Alfalfa seems to grow no matter what I do! But if you want the sulphorafane from brassicas, you'll have to work for it a bit.
