How many seeds should I put in my sprout jar?

Each type of seed has a different quantity that will "fill up the jar" once grown. In general, the smaller seeds expand to a larger size compared to the larger seeds. So 5 grams of something small like alfalfa will fill up a whole jar, whereas you may need 20 grams of a larger seed (such as peas) to fill up a jar of pea sprouts.

We've simplified it to make it a bit easier (tsp = teaspoon = 5 grams).

  • Broccoli - 2 tsp
  • Red cabbage - 2 tsp
  • Onion - 3tsp
  • Peas - 5tsp
  • Mung beans - 3 tsp
  • Fenugreek - 3tsp
  • Kale - 2 tsp
  • Alfalfa - 1tsp

Hope this helps - get growing!
