Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring/early summer after last frost or in early fall in a sunny location. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. For row crop planting see chart. For large sprouts, sow seeds in spring/summer in sandy soil in a bright and cool location. Broadcast seeds on soil and cover thinly. Keep uniformly moist. Harvest by cutting when seedlings reach 3-4". For smaller sprouts, use a sprouting jar indoors. Rinse seeds thoroughly before planting and rinse sprouts well before eating.
