Notes & Growing Tips: Micro chives are  slow to germinate and sprout but are well worth the time and effort, as the flavor is different from most microgreens. Can be grown hydroponically but we recommend soil.  Pre-soak for a few hours is optional, but chives will sprout well without a soak.  Cover with a very thin layer of soil and tamp lightly.

The pleasant onion flavor is a great compliment to any micro greens salad, and the shape is a contrast to most other microgreens.  Use instead of onions anywhere.   Amazing on hamburgers, soups, as garnishes, and more.
