How long do microgreens last after harvest? As a general rule, purchased microgreens typically last 10-12 days in your fridge. If you were to grow your own microgreens and cut them at home, they would last about two weeks, on average. The shelf life can vary, however, depending on the type of microgreen. For example, heartier varieties like sunflower, scallions, and pea tendrils can last up to three weeks, yet the more delicate varieties, like basil, may only last up to five days.
At our vertical farming facility in Lakewood, CO, we harvest our microgreens 365 days a year, so there’s always a constant, fresh, and local supply available for purchase in the Denver area. You can buy Infinite Harvest microgreens in select grocery stores, at the farmer’s market or via curbside pickup.
If you’re looking for inspiration on how to use your microgreens, check out our microgreens recipes. Some microgreens have very specific flavor profiles, but most can be simply tossed into a salad, layered into a sandwich or used as a garnish in cocktails or on dishes.
