This item was last sold on : 12/01/23
Micro Sea Beans™ are small in size, averaging 5-7 centimeters in length, and are fleshy and succulent stems that are connected by many tiny joints. The stems are long, slender, fairly straight and are dark green, smooth, and are divided into many small segments. Micro Sea Beans™ are juicy, crisp, and crunchy with a mild, salty, and briny flavor with an aftertaste similar to the taste of asparagus and green beans.
Micro Sea Beans™ are available year-round.
Micro Sea Beans™ are young, tiny, edible greens that are harvested only 14-25 days after sowing. Micro Sea Beans™ are a part of a trademarked line of specialty microgreens grown by Fresh Origins Farm, the leading national producer of both common and unique microgreens, located in San Diego, California. Despite its name, Micro Sea Beans™ are not beans but are delicate fleshy stems that are commonly used by chefs as a salty and crunchy garnish for seafood.
Micro Sea Beans™ contain vitamin A, protein, iron, and calcium.
Micro Sea Beans™ are best suited for raw applications as their delicate nature cannot withstand high heat preparations. They are most commonly used as a garnish, piled over seafood, poultry, and other meat dishes. Micro Sea Beans™ will add a salty crunch to any dish, so care should be taken not to add additional salt until tasted with the greens. They can also be added to omelets, stir-fries, noodles, soups, and salads. Micro Sea Beans™ pair well with fats such as butter, aioli, olive oil, and mayonnaise, tempura, seafood such as salmon, crab, mussels, clams, and lobster, potatoes, soba noodles, and acids such as vinegar or lemon juice. They will keep 5-7 days when stored unwashed, in a sealed container, and in the refrigerator.
Fresh Origins Farm has been providing distributors and restaurants with unique and fresh microgreens for over twenty years. Microgreens such as Micro Sea Beans™ are changing the way chefs think about and use garnishes because they are no longer just for decoration. Micro Sea Beans™ have a distinct, salty crunch and an unusual shape to add depth and visual appeal to dishes. Fresh Origins Farm uses the sunny Southern California climate to produce healthy crops with bold, exceptional flavors. The microgreens are grown in greenhouses that allow for natural sunlight and continuous air circulation, which is an ideal climate for optimum growth and year-round harvest.
Micro Sea Beans™ were created by Fresh Origins Farm in San Diego, California in the 1990s-2000s as a part of the growing microgreen trend. Today Micro Sea Beans™ can be found at select distributors of Fresh Origins, such as Specialty Produce, and are available across the United States.
