To allow gardeners to grow miniature varieties in their own vegetable patch. Many updated garden shops have chosen to create the “Mini-Vegetables” seed boxes.

Growing mini vegetables and micro greens are an excellent means of getting your 5-a-day when you don’t have much space. You only need a sunny windowsill, patio, backyard or balcony as they can all be grown in pots. They are also tenderer than the larger varieties, having less tough, woody fibres, and have the same nutritional benefits. Mini vegetables and micro greens can also be more flavoursome than their larger counterparts. They are harvested sooner after sowing than full sized varieties so are less susceptible to pests and diseases. Mini vegetables are either bred specifically to be small or are large varieties harvested young.

Miniature vegetables stem from basically two sources: those that are harvested as immature vegetables or fruit from standard size varieties, and miniature vegetables that are dwarf varieties, wherein the mature fruit is truly smaller in size. An example of the former would be the tiny ears of corn often found canned and used in Asian cuisine or pickled in German style salads. Delicate and sweet tasting, these 2-inch babies are harvested before the silk begins to dry.
There are about 45-50 varieties of miniature vegetables marketed for consumption in the United States. Their delicate consistency renders them with a relatively short shelf life and more labor intensive harvesting practices. They reflect those liabilities with a higher price tag than their full sized counterparts. Due to these high costs, home gardeners will do well to grow their own as seeds are now readily available either through seed catalogues (online) or at one’s local garden center.
Growing baby vegetables is much the same as growing their larger counterparts, so the care of these baby vegetable plants will mimic the same conditions as these.
