Pea TendrilsSweet, crunchy pea-like flavour
Did you know?
The young pea tendrils have round hollow stems with thin coiled tendrils that allow it to climb in a trellising fashion. The succulent leaves are the most tender part of the plant and are a soft green colour with pale yellow veins. Pea tendrils offer a mildly grassy aroma and the same sweet vegetal flavour of a fresh pea.

To extract the live microgreens from the trays we recommend using a pair of sharp scissors to cut the plant at the base, just above the roots, while holding a small bunch with your fingertips. To make sure you get the most flavour and the best texture, use the microgreens immediately after cutting.
Take care of your Pea Tendrils
Our microgreens trays can be kept alive, in a cool environment and away from direct sunlight (Best in your fridge). If the soil that the microgreens are kept in seems dry, feel free to water the base, from the bottom. Use the greens as needed – you can’t get any fresher – and after all – freshness is flavour.
