Growing Tips for Successful Pea Microgreens:

At our shop, we understand that growing pea microgreens requires a bit of effort, but don't worry! We provide expert tips and guidance to help you achieve success in cultivating these nutritious greens. On each page dedicated to pea shoots, you'll find detailed growing instructions tailored to each specific type. There are also universal tips that are more than enough to start your pea shoots adventure today like:

  • Soaking the Seeds for Enhanced Germination: 

To ensure optimal germination, we recommend soaking the pea seeds for 6-12 hours before planting. This process softens the seed skins, aiding in the germination process and promoting healthy growth. Remember that universal rule that big seeds always need some pre-soaking, tiny seeds - don’t. 

  • Blackout Period for Robust Development: 

Providing around 6 days of blackout, where the sewed on the growing substrate seeds are shielded from light. It is crucial for pea microgreens' robust development. This period allows seeds to transform into sprouts which not harvested will establish their root systems and develop strong stems, setting the stage for vibrant and flavorful pea microgreens. If you want to produce pea sprouts you do not use the growing substrate. 

  • Approximately 2 Weeks of Growth: 

After the blackout period, allow your pea micro greens to grow for approximately 2 weeks. During this time, pea shoots will flourish, and tendrils will reach an ideal stage for harvest. Regular monitoring of their growth and ensuring proper watering will contribute to the deliciousness you desire.

  • Temperature Adjustment for Crispy Texture: 

If you desire extra crispiness in your pea shoots, consider adjusting the temperature during their growth. Growing them in a slightly lower temperature can enhance the texture, adding a delightful crunch to your dishes.

With our detailed growing instructions and expert advice, you'll be well-equipped to embark on a successful journey of growing pea shoots, pea sprouts, pea tendrils, pea microgreens, and green pea varieties. Happy growing!

 

When to harvest pea microgreens?

Harvesting pea microgreens involves a careful balance to ensure optimal flavor, texture, and nutritional value. The timing can vary based on the specific variety and growing conditions, but here are some general guidelines for when to harvest pea microgreens:

  • Height: ✓

Pea microgreens are usually ready for harvest when they reach a height of around 4 to 6 inches (10 to 15 cm). At this stage, they have developed their first pair of true leaves and are vibrant green in color.

  • Tendrils: ✓

If the variety of pea microgreens you're growing has tendrils (the thin, curly extensions that some pea plants develop), they can be an additional indicator of readiness. Tendrils are often a sign that the plant is actively growing, and they can be harvested along with the microgreens for added flavor and visual appeal.

  • Crunchiness: ✓

The desired crunchiness of pea microgreens can be a subjective preference. As they grow, pea microgreens become increasingly tender. Harvest them when they have a satisfying crunch without being overly tough. This balance between tenderness and crunchiness is a key factor in their culinary appeal.
