Microgreens are leaf and stem vegetables harvested while they are still very small. The smallest microgreens would be sprouted seeds, though many microgreens are more mature, having developed at least a few leaves.

Commercial production of microgreens usually involves hydroponics, but microgreens can also be grown in containers or garden soil.
Overall, the method is similar to growing full-sized vegetables, except that microgreens can be planted much closer together, and of course they are harvested earlier.

Microgreens are considered a gourmet vegetable by some. due to their interesting appearance and possibly richer taste or nutrition.
Other immature vegetables such as 'baby corn' are also popular, but not technically 'microgreens'. However, earlier harvest while still immature is still the key difference.
