What to look for in wheatgrass seeds
Wheatgrass seeds are available online and in many grocery and natural food stores. They’re not always the easiest to find, though. Sometimes wheatgrass seeds are called “wheat berries” or “hard red spring wheat.” Seeds sold under these names can be used to grow wheatgrass for juicing.
Some shoppers look for organic wheat berries to grow their own organic wheat grass. Others would just rather buy bulk quantities of wheatgrass seeds based on their bulk price. Decide what is important to you before buying wheatgrass seeds. I’d recommend starting with purchasing a small amount before you get into any bulk purchases!
