Green Pea shoots are small, averaging 5 to 15 centimeters in length, and consist of a thin stem bearing 2 to 4 leaves with developing tendrils. The green leaves are flat, oval, and flexible with even, curved edges. The first two leaves to emerge are known as cotyledons, and these leaves generally have a sweeter, more delicate flavor compared to the true leaves that later emerge. Many Green Pea shoots will contain both types of leaves, and the leaves connect into an elongated, pale green, crunchy, and slender stem. Green Pea shoots have a subtle, earthy aroma and are crisp and tender with a sweet, slightly nutty, and fresh, grassy flavor.
