I have grown a lot of "micro-greens" on a commercial level. I assume you are
going to cnusme these in a salad -like manner?
I would cut them just as they get "true" leaves and before they get too
tough. Try them out every day or so and see how they taste. I would cut them
abouot half way between the soil and the leaves.
Good Luck!
