Also known as micro leaves, these miniature herbs are harvested at just over 2cm in height, otherwise known as the first ‘true leaf’ stage. A combination of subtle tenderness, strong flavour and a unique visual appearance make micro herbs a popular accompaniment in the kitchen.
R&G’s micro herb range includes miniature varieties of basil, chard, cress, mizuna, rocket and baby watercress, to name but a few.
When it comes to micro herbs, it’s best to use sparingly to start. They make a great accompaniment to sandwiches, salads and as a garnish for meat and fish dishes.
