Soak Broccoli for 4 - 6 hours to soften the seed and begin germination. It is temperature sensitive and germinates slower in winter than summer. Sprouting broccoli is also notorious for the very healthy, but very pungent, phytochemical sulforaphane which develops an unmistakable sulfur-like odor by day 4-6. Rinse 3 times daily with cold water to keep broccoli sprouts clean of its robust smell as well as other metabolic wastes and carbon dioxide. Keep your jar in a dark cool place or covered with a kitchen towel while sprouting until day 5. Broccoli will sprout 3-4” long in its 5-7 days of growth and will require about 12-24 hours of sunlight before harvesting.
