Pea Shoots

Tender green stems and leaves with a fresh pea pod flavour

Relatively new to the UK market, pea shoots shot to fame through publicity on cookery shows. They can be enjoyed straight from the bag as a base for a crunchy flavoursome salad or a delicious ingredient in a sandwich, stir-fry or other hot dishes.

With a crunchy, fresh taste, pea shoots are not only a delicious, low calorie option, they are also full of nutrients including vitamin C and folic acid.

Pea shoots take 11-14 days to grow and are hydroponically grown on a paper mat 365 days a year. They are cut, washed and packed ready to eat for maximum freshness and convenience.
