Video: 'Dwarf Grey Sugar Pea' Shoots — Quick, high-value crop for year-round growing


Here we have our 'Dwarf Grey Sugar Pea.' This shoot has a nice sweet pea flavor.

Shoots are a fast and easy way to dress up your heartier foods, like stewed meats and chilis, but they can also be used on or in salads, stir-fries, pad thais, or risottos. You can cut them up or keep them whole. They are also a beautiful and tasty garnish for cheese platters.

They grow quickly on a greenhouse bench, light cart, or sunny windowsill, and you can harvest them in just a few days.

A quick growing tip is to lay your shoots seeds out in your planting container before soaking. This will help you better estimate how many seeds you will need.
