If left to mature, makes for some great tasting broccoli heads.

Broccoli sprouts have just recently become popular after it was discovered that they abound with the amazing cancer-fighting phytochemical, sulforaphane.

Research studies have shown that they contain 50 times more sulforpohane than fresh broccoli. What’s more, they contain glucosinolates and isothiocyanates, substances that protect cells from becoming malignant, at 10-100 times greater levels than in fresh broccoli. In additon, they are sources of plant estrogens, similar to human estrogen, and so are helpful in cases of PMS, menopause, hot flashes and fibrocystic disease.

Nutrient dense, they are rich sources of vitamins A, B, C, E and K, anti-oxidants, the minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc. Also carotene, chlorophyll, amino acids, trace elements and antioxidants. Broccoli sprouts contain as much as 35% protein.

Sow indoors anytime in flats filled with an organic sterile seeding mix. Keep moist but not wet—a growing cover aids in keeping seeds from drying out. Maintain at least 70 F. Germination ranges from 7 to 14 days. Begin to harvest after first full leaves appear. Depending on usage a start every week or two will keep you in fresh broccoli sprouts.
