Taste and look of Pea Afila (Foxy) Shoots

Pea foxy microgreens are known for their vibrant green color, curly tendrils, and delicate appearance. They are quite appealing to the eye, with their lush green leaves and curly tendrils which add an attractive and artistic touch to dishes, making them a popular choice for restaurant chefs for garnishes.

What are pea tendrils and is it the same as pea shoots?

  • Pea Shoots: These typically refer to the entire young, tender above-ground parts of the pea plant, including both the stems and leaves. This broader definition encompasses not only the curly tendrils but also the straight stems and attached leaves.

  • Pea Tendrils: In this context, "tendrils" specifically refer to the curly, thin, and coiled parts of the young pea plant, often resembling delicate spirals. This term may be used to differentiate the curly, slender parts from the straight stems and broader leaves.

It's important to note that the terminology can vary, and different regions or individuals might use these terms differently. The choice of whether to refer to the entire young pea plant as "pea shoots" or to specifically mention "pea tendrils" for the curly parts can depend on local conventions, culinary preferences, and communication within a particular culinary or gardening community.
