These are easy to grow like pea shoots. The shoots are much thicker and great for stir frying. Taste delicious and I love that they grow thick. I was also really impressed by how Christina was fast in providing me with the cost over the phone. Overall very happy to have these seeds to grow for my weekly microgreens.
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.
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.
3 day sprout in water - rinse -water or 3 days in soil as well. Im doing both sprouts and full plants! Fast shipping / 3 day sprouts/ 8 days for good shoots. - to be determined for full plant! Great job!
love the dark green colour ,and taste ,in a smoothie ,or salad or pan fried with butter and lemon
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.
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.
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...
After some trial and error i found they grew well and produced great tasting shoots. they are great in a salad or on a sandwich.
This is the best company I have ever worked with. They are very knowledgeable and honest as I can hope to find . Can't say enough about them . Thank you so much for being there !!!!
