Growing seed for sprouts 

All natural edible sprouts offer both flavor and nutrients to many dishes throughout the world. Sprouts have been a staple for many diets all over the world for thousands of years. They are easy to grow, nutritious, and economical, yielding 5 pounds worth of sprouts for every pound of seed!

We designate our highest quality seeds as sprouting quality, and a few things separate them from your average seed.  Invisible fractures, soil contamination, and sorted sizing separates average seed from exceptional.  Our sorting facilities and our amazing growers make it happen!

New Markets Means More Profits For Farmers 

By selling high quality seeds in a global market, weaver seed is able to give farmers a higher price for the seed they produce.  This allows our growers to contract production on Peas and Radishes that may not normally yield good profits.  

How to Sprout Radish Seed
  1. Starting a full garden can be a lot of work, but sprouting radish, mustard, and pea seeds are a very easy way to get  into growing your own produce, or can be a fantastic addition to existing gardens.    Having a fantastic sprout starts with having great seeds, using seeds with high germination rates, and seeds bread to have quick growth right out of seed is important.  

  2. Put seeds in a container, some use Mason Jars, some use glass pans, and put a screen over the top of the container 

  3. Rinse then soak seeds in water and let them sit for 12-18 hours, the seeds will absorb a lot of water, so make sure they keep wet 

  4. then give them a rinse, and strain out the water carefully, 

  5. from this point just give them a rinse and strain out the water once a day in a couple days you will have delicious sprouts! 

Medical Benefits of Sprouts

Seed sprouts contain concentrated quantities of chemicals that plants use as a natural defense against Insects, Bacteria, and fungus.  When eating sprouts these chemicals can be recycled and used by your body to fight and protect against, bacteria, fungus, and can prevent cell mutations that lead to cancer.  Multiple studies have found cancer preventative properties in Isothiocyanates, as well as sulforaphane found concentrated in young tissues of radish, cabbage, mustard, and broccoli sprouts.  Consuming these foods regularly can reduce you likelihood of developing several types of cancers listed below by among other things increasing the bodies regulation of DNA and RNA replication.  Mistakes and mutations in these are often the cause of cancer development.
