We have been fascinated to discover a wonderful source of pea shoots that is incredibly productive. Our pea shoot kits feature a variety of peas that have been bred for their prolific production of shoots with beautiful frilly tendrils and temptingly crisp and pea tasting flavor. This really productive plant has yielded multiple cuts of shoots.
The photos below highlight our ongoing harvest of the tray that was photographed last week, this tray was completely cut to first leaf area and has since regrown. The numbers are amazing as the kit contains packets of approximately 100 seeds. Germination and growth numbers gave us 80+ shoots in the first cut. Take a close look at this second tray as some of the growth is actually yielding more that one shoot per plant. We have a customer that has plants now that has harvested at least 5 shoots per plant with more growth.
By our simple calculation we could expect upwards 400 pea shoots per tray over a 4-6 week period. By harvesting 10+ shoots each day you would have a daily source of wonderful live pea shoots for your consumption. You will not believe the taste and freshness of these great little shoots! Get our Pea Shoot kits now, each kit contains 2 packets of seeds so double the amount of shoots for you!
