Coltivo i germogli da più di 10 anni e finalmente ho trovato un sito con i prezzi davvero imbattibili e vasta gamma dei prodotti.
daikon e ravanelli in genere sono i miei preferiti. basta una notte di ammollo e tre giorni nel germogliatore (uso quello di plastica a più piani) sciacquando i germogli un paio di volte al giorno. Facile, economico, buono.
