Organic Pea Seed for Microgreens 

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 8 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!
