How to Store Microgreens

How to Store Microgreens

Cut microgreens can be kept fresh in your fridge for up to two weeks. Here’s how we store ours at home.

Glass jar of microgreens

1) Wash and dry microgreens completely

- See: How to Clean Microgreens


2) Place microgreens into a sealed container

- Transfer microgreens into reusable container without overstuffing
- Place single layer of absorbent paper towel on top of microgreens if necessary (see below)
- We recommend using a mason jar or repurposed sauce jar but any glass or plastic container with a lid will work
- PRO TIP: Pre chill your container to further reduce condensation


3) Keep container refrigerated

- Microgreens will wilt if left out of the fridge
- Store microgreens in the produce drawer of your fridge or on a lower shelf away from cool air vents


4) Use paper towels to control humidity

- Paper towels can be used to increase or decrease the humidity in your container and extend the life of your greens
- Add a strip of dry paper towel on top of your microgreens once condensation starts to form on the inside of the lid to soak up excess moisture
- Add a strip of damp paper towel on top of your microgreens overnight if they have started to dry out and turn limp
