*Note - Microgreens eaten raw contain the highest levels of nutrients and are full of flavor.

Different microgreens stay fresh for different lengths of time. We have had great results storing our greens in an air tight container in the refrigerator. When stored properly, microgreens can stay fresh for around 7-10 days, but many can last up to 2 weeks. If you notice any signs of spoiling you should discard them.
