Ok, now I am curious, do you have wheatgrass, the actual planted, growing grass or do you only have the wheatgrass seeds? There is a whole process for starting wheatgrass from seed which includes having the correct type of seed which is most often hard red winter wheat. Then they have to be soaked then sprouted then planted. Never direct sunlight. I actually had them in trays on racks in an upstairs bath which has windows for light and that is sufficient. 75-80 degrees is best and it takes about 8 days from sprout to harvest.

ok thanks. that was my next question which was how long do you let it grow before harvesting...and how do you grow it during that process? like in a refrigerator, out near a window, do you water it, etc? thanks

It's been awhile since I juiced it but as I recall 8oz of grass yielded 2 oz of juice with my juicer. I have a duel auger but I hear a single auger juicer can yield a bit more and produce less foam. When you say seeds do you mean roots? No, the grass is cut close to the root bed which is then discarded. It is not recommended to regrow as the second growth can be bitter. I have never done it so I can't say for sure. I just always plant a new bed of grass seed each time. It's harvested when the blades of grass start to grow a second shoot near about the middle of the blade, roughly 7 inches tall.

yes. thanks. how much of it makes one to two ounces in a juicer? also, the "seeds" at the bottom are included, or if you trim the top or green parts off, will more grow back? that i don't understand

Wheatgrass is typically juiced and drank either straight or can be mixed in with other juices. One to two ounces is a typical serving. It is high alkaline and very cleansing to the body. A masticating juicer with a low rpm is best to get the maximum juice from the blades of grass. A centrifugal juice will pretty much just shoot the blades through to the waste container. Hope this answers your question.
