Pea Microgreens Seeds

Pea microgreens seeds develop into sweet shoots with robust, fresh flavor, much like young garden peas. These seeds are adapted for indoor gardening. All it takes to grow them at home is moist soil in a shallow tray and sufficient lighting. Microgreens are harvested in a short time, and are rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as essential amino acids and fiber. They’re a nutritious topping for salads and other foods.

Growing Pea Microgreens Seeds

  • Sweet pea flavor
  • Rich in nutrients
  • Heirloom, non-GMO seeds
  • Ideal for indoor gardening


Pea microgreens, young seedlings of the pea plant, possess the nutritional benefits of mature peas, including significant amounts of protein. They are especially popular with vegetarians. This is a good way to include plant-based protein, with harvesting starting soon after the first true leaves develop. Growing these microgreens is an easy way to have some fun growing new things and to add to a more healthy diet.


Soak pea microgreen seeds in water for 12-24 hours. Spread them thickly over 1/2-1 inch of moist potting mix in a well-draining shallow container, about 5 inches by 5 inches in size. Press seeds in firmly. Mist them with water and cover the top to retain moisture and block out any light. Place the covered container in a completely dark space. Keep covered and in darkness for 3-5 days. Mist as needed to retain moisture. When there is a few inches of growth, or when the microgreens begin to lift the cover, expose them to direct light. Harvest with scissors in 8-12 days.


Pea microgreens grow slightly slower than other microgreens. They need regular misting with water throughout their growth process, with adequate lighting from grow lights or the sun after they sprout. Harvest pea microgreens when they reach about 3 to 4 inches, just above the soil line. These shoots are exceptionally crunchy and sweet. Consume them right after harvest, for optimum pea microgreens nutrition.

Grow pea microgreens at home and experience the tasty treat they provide. Microgreens are the perfect choice for anyone lacking garden space, for cultivation throughout the year.


How to Grow Microgreens

The general process of growing microgreens is fairly simple. The steps are as follows:

  1. Pre-soak seeds as specified on the packet
  2. Sprinkle seeds over a tray with a 1/2" to 1" layer of moist potting mix. Press into the soil to ensure good contact.
  3. Mist seeds with a spray bottle and cover to maintain moisture and block out light.
  4. Keep seeds covered for the blackout period. Setting the tray inside a cupboard works well. Check seeds during the blackout period and mist as needed to keep seeds moist.
  5. When the microgreens are a few inches tall or begin to live the cover, expose
    them to light, allowing the seedlings to develop and grow.
  6. When microgreens look ready, harvest with a pair of scissors and enjoy!
