Definition of greensprouting

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

A technique to hasten the germination process of seeds (or potatoes). For potatoes, place the uncut seed tubers in a warm (65 to 70 F) dark place. As soon as sprouts begin to appear, move to light and lower the temperatures to about 50 F to keep the sprouts short and stocky.

This technique is supposed to reduce the time to harvest by nearly two weeks. Another term for the technique is chitting
