Speckled peas seeds are easy to grow into delicious greens. However, they have more leaves and are generally more tender and less fibrous than pea shoots grown from green pea seeds.
However, both taste great, and whether chopped or steamed, they taste like fresh peas from the pods.
These microgreens are vigorous growers once they get started. The pea plants root deeply, so deeper trays work best. However, we get three, sometimes four, cuttings from one planting in the Home Microgreens Tray.
The flavor is just like sweet garden peas! We prefer to chop the pea stems before adding them to a salad or cooked foods. You can also add them as they are to stir-fries or steam them.
Harvest pea microgreens in as few as 10-days, but I usually let them go much longer. If harvested correctly, you can get 2 or 3 cuttings from one planting. Harvest the upper portion of the pea plants for more tender greens and better re-growth.
