Cultivation: Wash and soak seeds for 6-8 hours (do not re-use water). Sow seeds by broadcasting in soil. Cover for 2–3 days or until the germinating. Keep soil moist or bottom water. Grow in a dark area if a blanched final product is desired. As seedlings are growing, knock off the seed coats from the cotyledons. If some seed coats do not fall off readily, removal with fingers may be necessary. Harvest 3-4" or desired length.
