Seeds sprouted in 2 days. They were ready to eat in 5-6 days. Perfect product!
These peas are great. They germinate well, grow well, are really easy to manage. Decent harvests too!
I love the full green colour of the Pea Shoots! Nice fresh flavour, great taste. My only observation is that it has an uneven growth. Most Shoots are nice and even. but there are some that grow taller. Not a big issue.
I've grown these only once (as micro-greens) and they turned out great. I kept the soaked seeds in the dark and weighted down until they sprouted, then removed the weights and placed the trays near my east-facing window (November in Edmonton). The drwarf peas took about seven or eight days to sprout and another four days in the sun to get the second set of leaves - ready to eat. I'm growing pea sprouts because they are a natural source of diamine oxidase (DAO) - helpful for histamine intolerance. This one is a winner. I also tried the speckled peas, but they were not as good for my purposes.
I waited a long time for these as they were out of stock. I purchased them as soon as they were available and I'm VERY glad I did. The spouts grown from these peas are the best! They are more substantial than most, juicy and tender and they keep re-sprouting even after several clippings.
We have tried them for a couple of times now, and they are so reliable. They also keep on growing after you cut them.
I grow these without soil for around 13 days with a very weak hydroponic solution made from sea minerals, kelp fertilizer, organic and standard hydroponic concentrate. Less time and they're slightly more tender but have a smaller yield. More than 13 days and the get a bit too fibrous for my liking although the yield is better. They produce more and better shoots than the speckled peas. I don't regrow any of my pea shoots as they take too long and have a low yield with fibrous shoots. I'm growing them in my garden for the sugar pea pods and so far they're growing well.
We found the grey dwarf pea shoot to be a great and easy shoot to grow. tastes like it was right from the garden!
This is a pea I grow in the garden (and save my own seed, as it is so easy). I choose to order a kg as this is a much easier route to go and very inexpensive. For your info, I started by buying a 25g package of the seed for $2.99 from a local organic seed provider. I can buy a kg from Mumms for $7.97. If you multiply this out, it equals $120.00 for the $7.97 purchase from Mumms. And then of course, there is the use of the seed for sprouting and microgreens....at mumms price (not possible to do at the other price). Plus my cat just loves the microgreens and the peas. At the price and quality (and organic) of Mumms seeds, there is no need for me to save my own, except in an emergency.
Fast growth and great taste. We let them regrow after harvest and feed to our free range chickes in the winter. We grow them as micro green shoots rather than sprouts
