Description:
Pea shoots are the edible leaves of the traditional garden pea plant. The traditional pea plant takes the whole summer to grow in order to produce pea pods, but pea shoots are harvested within 2 weeks, creating super tender and flavorful roughage.

Growing Instructions:
Grow in a greenhouse, indoors under lights, or outside when the weather is warm 65°F. Soak seeds for 8 hours (do not reuse water). Fill flats with 1–1½" soilless media. Sow seeds close together and cover with an inverted tray using it to lightly press seeds into soil media. Leave the inverted tray on the flat for 2–3 days or until the germinating seeds lift the trays upwards an inch or so, then remove. Keep moist by misting on a regular basis or use a leak-proof tray to bottom water. If mold becomes a problem in warmer conditions the bottom watering method should be used. Shoots should be at a marketable size within 7–21 days. Grow in a dark area if a blanched final product is desired. As seedlings are growing, gently run a plant stake or your hand over the plants; this will help knock off the seed coats from the cotyledons. If some seed coats do not fall off readily, removal with fingers may be necessary. Some may not come off even with a gentle pulling; these plants should then be removed before harvest.
