Mung seeds are large enough

that they will not fall through a colander. While waiting for my order from sproutpeople I hit a local health food store for the beans. After soaking for 12 hours, I allowed mine to grow for 48 hours. I would say the root was about 3/4 of an inch long. If I were to use them for cooking I would continue to let them grow. Anyway we have been putting them in salad and I love the crunchy texture and cabbage like flavor. I'm also looking forward to growing micro greens. Most can be done hydroponically and take about 10 days. It's cool what can be produced with seed and water.
