HOW LONG SHOULD ADZUKI BEAN SPROUTS GROW?
A good rule of thump is that the white root should be as long as the bean for the sprouts are mature to eat. This means that the root should grow to be about 2 cm long.
You should not eat sprouted Adzuki beans before the root is this long. This is because the lechtins in the beans need to neutralize during the sprouting process. So give your bean sprouts the needed time to mature.
It takes 2-4 days for the white root to grow to the desired length. The time span is because sprouts grow faster in hot weather than in cold climates. So the cultivation time is shorter during summer than winter.

ORIGIN OF ADZUKI BEAN SPROUTS
The latin name or scientific name of Adzuki beans is Vigna angularis.
They originate in East Asia where this bean is a very popular food both in its boiled and sprouted form.
Adzuki beans for sprouts are most often red. But this bean may also be found in white, black, gray or variously mottled varieties.
CAN YOU EAT THE WHOLE ADZUKI BEAN SPROUT?
Yes, if you cultivate your Adzuki bean to form only 2 cm long root, you can eat the whole sprout. Some choose to eat the empty seed hulls too. I am not to fond of the taste of seed hulls myself, but you may choose to eat them. The hulls are bitter and chewy, but full of plant fibre.
If you eat only the sprout inkl root, then Adzuki beans have a delicious and fresh flavor of fresh hazelnuts with an under tone of lightly boiled beans. The taste become ‘flat if you let the sprout grow for longer than 2 cm root.

This is a great sprout especially if you are looking for green protein. If you are a vegan, I warmly recommend, that you eat your Adzuki bean sprouts raw. Because then you will fully benefit from their plant protein.
WHAT DO ADZUKI BEAN SPROUTS LOOK LIKE?
Adzuki sprouts have about the same size as Mung bean sprouts. But Mung beans have a green seed hull and Adzuki have a reddish-brown seed hull.
Adzuki beans are ready for harvest when their white root is 2 cm. At that stage the whole sprout is about 3 cm incl the root.
You will notice, that the seed hull stays on the bean during the first few days. As the sprout mature during 2-4 days of sprouting, the hulls fall off. The sprouts are white with a pale yellow or sometimes slightly reddish tint under the hull.
The white root often protrudes in very artistic forms, which is very pretty. You can enhanse the tendency by flipping the sprouts gently when rinsing the sprouts during your cultivation of them.
RECIPES WITH ADZUKI BEAN SPROUTS
Adzuki bean sprouts are delicious both raw in Salads, Wraps, Dips and Spreads. You can also use them as topping on Soups or Casseroles.
If you choose to use the Adzuki sprouts mixed in hot dishes like Soups, Wok or Stews, I recommend you add the sprouts just before you start to eat the dish. This is because your sprouts will maintain their crispiness and nutrients best if you eat them almost raw.
Another benefit of keeping Adzuki sprouts almost raw is that they loose nutrients, protein and antioxidants when heated. Fortunately this sprout taste great in its raw state in many different dishes.
Adzuki sprouts are very easy to cultivate in any sprouter. But no matter your choise of sprouter, your sprouts will thriwe best when they get fresh oxygen.
To ensure this, shake your sprouter very gently when you rinse the sprouts. The soft shake will rotate the sprouts and create little air pockets between them. This will let the sprouts get more oxygen to grow better.
In connection to the previous tips on oxygen: Here is one on the effect of still water on sprouts.
Adzuki beans will go soft and rot, if they lay submersed in or are exposed to still water for more than a few minutes at a time during their cultivation. So drain away excess water after each rinse. That way your adzuki bean sprouts will grow well for you and result in crispy, protein-rich sprouts.
All sprouts need water to grow and develop.When you grow sprouts, this is obtained with the daily rinses morning and evening.
If you do not rinse your Adzuki sprouts twice a day, they will dry out. If a sprout dries, it will not grow any more. And if you attempt so start a dried out sprout again, it will simply go bad. So keep your sprouts a little moist at all times.
