About Us

Florida MicroGreens is a studio showcasing vertical hydroponic growing systems. We grow microgreens and deliver to Southwest Florida!

We are located in Cape Coral, Florida offering living microgreens grown in 100% water in foodsafe containers and delivered direct to Chefs in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Naples, Marco Island and the surrounding Southwest Florida region.

What’s Special about Florida Microgreens?
Living, fresh greens are not only less expensive than the typical cut versions delivered in clamshells, but provide the best flavor, the longest shelf life, and the most robust, vibrant looking greens. That’s a big claim but as most Chefs know, cut greens have a short (2-3 day) shelf life after delivery before they turn limp, lose flavor, and look less appealing on the plate. So why make your dish look or taste less than the best? To date, local chefs report that several varieties of Florida Microgreens have lasted up to 3 weeks in their walk in coolers!

Now we all know that all micros are different. Some are more fragile, tender, and dainty than others. But if you think about the issue, there’s a simple solution. Keep the greens alive as long as possible and thereby increase flavor, viability, and safety because you are removing all the processing and handling time. It’s not hard to imagine that if the plant is alive, it will last longer and retain its flavor.
