Poor germination

  • By: Mat Verified Buyer from victoria, BC CA on April 30, 2018
  • Pros: The Flavor
  • Cons: germination
  • Best uses: As an Ingredient
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

Thick, tall and tasty. I grow it as microgreens. Quite poor germination rate and susceptible to mold (stacking tray), overall seeds are very slow to germinate, probably got an old batch. When they grow, though, they look and taste amazing.

Lovely microgreens!

  • By: GreeningCondo Verified Buyer from Montreal, QC CA on April 5, 2018
  • Pros: The Appearance
  • Cons: None... you just need a little patience to let them grow!
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

I've experimented with several microgreens, speckled peas being my favourite, but I must say, since learning a couple of tips, favas are right up there too! They have a thicker, juicy stalk, and larger leaves. They do need a couple more days in the dark as well as in the light. Also, I found that cutting them with a ceramic knife eliminates the problem of browning of the cut stems.

worth a try

  • By: Myles Verified Buyer from Delhi, ON CA on December 20, 2018
  • Pros: The Flavor
  • Cons: not super fast growth, but not terrible either!
  • Best uses: As an Ingredient
  • Describe Yourself: DIY`er

I was excited to try fava microgreens. I don't have too much experience with them; only one batch on a 1020 flat. That aside, they are very interesting. Flavour is similar to a mild green bean, and there is a pleasant nutty aftertaste. If they grow past 12-14 days they take on a mild bitterness too. Either way, I find they are excellent sauted or stir fried, far better than pea shoots imo. I prefer peashoots not wilted... Growwise, they germinate and grow noticably slower than most peas and I did have mold growing on dud seeds by the time I harvested.

Awful seed lot

  • By: Heydan Verified Buyer from Rossland, BC CA on February 17, 2019
  • Cons: Very low quality seed stock White mold everywhere
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: DIY`er

Very low quality seed stock. Loads of culls and rampant mold issues which we were told to “grow through anyway” when we asked for a refund.

Yes, and No

  • By: IndoorGardener Verified Buyer from Pierrefonds, QC CA on February 16, 2019
  • Pros: The Appearance
  • Cons: Many peas do not germinate.
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

These favas make beautiful microgreens, with large, round leafs, and a lovely taste. However, 15-20% don't germinate. On the plus side, each pea sends out 2 or more shoots, which kind of makes up for the ones that don't germinate. First time I tried them, several went moldy, so I discarded the batch. Next time, I sprouted them before planting them on soil, leaving out the unsprouted ones... I'm on the fence with these...
