This a new product in the Japanese grocery store called toumyou, or pea sprouts. Pea sprout is not new, but the way it is being served and then re-served is. When you purchase the pea sprout, you remove the pea sprout from the plastic bag and cut away the sprouts from the root base. Below you see right after removing the pea sprout.After you have cut away the original sprouts, you have to put the roots in water. After about a day or two, little sprouts start to grow. You also should replace the water everyday.After about one week, the pea spout is fully grown and ready to be harvested again. I guess you can re-harvest 2 or 3 times, but I only got one harvest from this plant.Pea sprouts are high in carotene and other healthy stuff. The back of the bag let you know what's going on.
