Quantity: 100 Bulk Seeds

Mung beans are one of the most familiar beans in the United States, yet perhaps the least known -- at least in sprout form. The same bean sprouts that accompany many Asian specialties are typically mung beans, sprouted and cleaned of the bean husk from which it grows. Growing the sprouts is a surprisingly simple task. However, growing a mung-bean plant (scientific name Vigna radiata, often called the "Chickasaw pea" in the US) indoors is fairly uncomplicated as well. Mung beans are grown similarly to other species of beans, with the added requirement of providing support for pole-type mung beans.

How to Sprout Mung Beans

1. Take the required amount of beans. I have 1 cup of mung bean here. Remember, it will double once sprouted. So prepare only the amount you can consume within 2 weeks.

2. Wash your beans well in cold water till the water runs clear. Drain and then place it in a bowl or sprouter if you possess one. Fill it with cold water until immersed well. (2 to 3 times as much as the seeds).

3. Soak overnight or at least for 8-12 hours.

4. Drain the water well. Rinse again with cold water and drain it again.

5. I have a bamboo steamer which I put to good use as far as sprouting goes. Since it has the system of draining, the excess water in case of any, drips off through those holes in the steamer. You can use cheesecloth, paper cloth or just a plain jar for sprouting. If you are using plain jar, then cover it with a light cloth.

6.Place them in a low light and at room temperature. When they suggest Dark place, don’t imagine inside a shelf or oven. Just place it where there is no direct sunlight like in a considerably darker place in your kitchen counter space or something.

If you just want just wee little sprouts
(1/4 – 1/2 inch roots): Rinse and Drain every 8-12 hours for 2 – 3 days.

If you just want to grow big mung sprouts
(1 – 3 inch roots): Rinse and Drain every 8-12 hours for 4 – 5 days.
