The Petite® Season’s Mix™ offers a wide array of Petite® Greens that vary in colors, shapes, flavors, and textures. The small leaves range in color from bright green, dark purple, to blends of green with red and purple patches and striping. The flat and pliable leaves may have some veining across the surface and can be round, oval, long, or slender with smooth or toothed edges. The Petite® Season’s Mix™ is crisp and tender with green, earthy flavors mixed with sweet and tangy, bright notes.
The Petite® Season’s Mix™ is available year-round.
The Petite® Season’s Mix™ includes a variety of 15-20 young herbs and greens that change with seasonal availability. The mix typically incorporates Petite® Hearts on Fire™, Petite® Lemon Balm, Petite® Lemon Grass, Petite® Sorrel, Petite® Verdolaga, Petite® Chard, Petite® Dill, Petite® Cilantro, Petite® Fava Leaf and Petite® Fennel. The Petite® Season’s Mix™ is a part of a trademarked line of specialty greens grown by Fresh Origins Farm in San Diego, California. Petite® Greens are designed to be slightly larger than microgreens, harvested 4-6 weeks after sowing, and are known for their robust flavors and tender textures. These greens are most commonly used to accent dishes and incorporate a unique combination of flavors, textures, and visual appeal to elevate culinary dishes.
The mixture of herbs in the Petite® Season’s Mix™ provides some magnesium, iron, vitamin C, antioxidants, beta-carotene, thiamine, and potassium.
The Petite® Season’s Mix™ is best suited for raw applications as it can withstand dressings and oils but cannot hold up to high heat preparations. The flavor of the mix offers a pleasant balance of earthy, bitter, sweet, and citrus. The Petite® Season’s Mix™ is best suited for savory dishes as an accent and can be used on top of stews or soups, mixed in salads, or served alongside both appetizer and main dishes. It can also be lightly dressed with bright olive oil and salt to enhance flavor. The Petite® Season’s Mix™ pairs well with seafood, poultry, fruits such as strawberries, persimmons, and peaches, heirloom tomatoes, pomegranate vinaigrette, and soft cheeses. It will keep 7-10 days when stored unwashed, in a sealed container, and in the refrigerator.

Chefs are utilizing these greens to infuse unique flavors, textures, and aromas into dishes to enhance the overall culinary experience.
