Pea Tendril Microgreens
Pea microgreens or pea shoots are one of the more popular microgreens we grow. Why you ask? Since they have a mild yet sweet flavor, they can be used in many dishes. The pea microgreen is also one of the largest of the microgreens we grow. Since this plant keeps its flavor throughout growth, they do not have to be harvested early like the sunflower to prevent bitterness. They look like tiny forests when they are ready to harvest. Nutritionally, the pea has many qualities.
Research has determined that pea shoots have up to 7 times more vitamin C than blueberries per weight. Pea shoots have four times more vitamin A than tomatoes as well.
Consuming pea shoots will help to provide essential nutrients without drastically increasing caloric intake. Even a small change in your diet today could provide noticeable and lifelong health benefits, and when there are simple and natural solutions like microgreens, you have the perfect natural way to start improving your health today.
