The Petite® Citrus Mix™ combines the bright and earthy flavors of Petite® Mint Lemon™, Petite® Sorrel, Petite® Tangerine Lace™, Petite® Hearts On Fire™, and Petite® Basil Lemon. The Petite® Citrus Mix™ is a part of a trademarked line of specialty greens grown by Fresh Origins Farm, the leading national producer of both common and unique Petite® Greens, located in San Diego, California. Designed to be slightly larger than microgreens, Petite® Greens are harvested approximately 4-6 weeks after sowing and offer a robust flavor and sturdier texture. The Petite® Citrus Mix™ is a unique blend that is popularly used by chefs to accent culinary dishes, especially poultry and seafood, and adds visual appeal with the unusual shapes and colors of the greens.
The Petite® Citrus Mix™ contains some iron, vitamin C, antioxidants, calcium, potassium, beta-carotene, and magnesium.
The Petite® Citrus Mix™ has a moderately strong citrus quality and substantial texture that is best suited for raw applications in savory dishes. The Petite® Citrus Mix™ can withstand dressings and oils and is best used lightly dressed with a bright olive oil or a sprinkling of salt to enhance flavor. It is commonly used as a highly versatile garnish for appetizers and main course dishes, placed in sandwiches for crispness and freshness or mixed into a green salad. The Petite® Citrus Mix™ pairs well with seafood, poultry, and cheeses. It will keep 7-10 days when stored unwashed, in a sealed container, and in the refrigerator.
The Petite® Citrus Mix™ and other Petite® Green mixes from Fresh Origins Farm are widely used by restaurant chefs to enhance dishes with no additional prep time.
