Description

Details

Pea shoots are a nutritious and tasty treat that are very easy to grow. The shoots have a delicious, nutty and distinct sweet pea-like flavour and are high in vitamins A, B, C and E.  They contain seven times more vitamin C than blueberries.  Pea shoots are also rich in calcium, chlorophyll, beta carotene and folic acid.  Not only that but pea shoots will also add iron, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus and potassium to your diet.  That's a lot of nutrition to grow in your kitchen!

In terms of impact, pea shoots will add the wow factor to all your salads. Their delicate tendrils can make a simple dish look exciting. Pea shoots could also help encourage a picky eater to become more interested in food.

How to  grow pea shoots

  • Soak the peas for 24/36 hours. You will need quite a large container as they double in size. 
  • Rinse and drain the seeds well.
  • Sprinkle the soaked peas over a tray of compost and press down gently.
  • It is advisable to use a micro biologically tested compost such as Klassmanns Peat Free Seed Compost to ensure there is no ecoli present.
  • Cover with a fine layer of compost.
  • Keep compost moist (but not soaking).
  • Best kept at a steady temperature of about 20oC
  • Cut pea shoots after about two weeks, or when you are happy with your crop!
