Anise | Organic Microgreen Seed


Anise | Organic Microgreen Seed

- +

 Anise is native to eastern Mediterranean and Southwest Asia regions. When grown for its true leaf, it has a beautiful liquorice flavour. Anise is a delicate and relatively easy variety to grow but can suffer easily from overwatering. The anise true leaf is a beautiful serrated leaf and looks and tastes amazing as a garnish.

Fun fact: Anise will have a similar reaction in some dogs as catnip does with cats! 

Latin name: Pimpinella anisum



Microgreen Instructions:
  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Soak: Do not soak
  • Germination time: 4 - 6 days
  • Harvest from: 14 - 21 days
  • Flavour/texture: Unique and sometimes intense liquorice flavour. Beautiful serrated true leaf.

1. Sow your seeds directly on your prepared growing surface - no need to cover with soil if using.
2. Place a tray directly on the seeds and weigh down with a tray to ensure good contact with the growing medium and to help the roots dig deep. Place and additional weight in the top tray. 2 tins of beans works perfect for anise.  
3. Keep weighed until the seedlings have germinated and are beginning to push against the weight.
4. Place in blackout when the seedlings are about 2cm tall - use blackout to stretch your seedlings to your desired length. It is best practice to wait until they are taller than the rim of your growing tray.
5. Place in a sunny location or under grow lights to green up your microgreens.
6. Harvest as soon as the true leaf starts developing. You can wait longer for a larger true leaf and a more powerful anise flavour
