Popcorn shoots are the tiny, edible versions of corn grown from popcorn kernels. Corn shoots are incredibly sweet and makes a great garnish for salads or other dishes in which you want a sweet flavor. The flavor is so intensely sweet it has to be experienced to be understood.
Popcorn shoots are packed with vitamins A, B, C, and E which are essential for body's daily functions.
Popcorn shoots are also full of iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium.
Also known as Popcorn microgreens, Popcorn shoots are harvested 14-25 days after sowing and are grown in lightless conditions, also known as blanching, to prevent photosynthesis. This process produces vibrant yellow leaves since the shoots are unable to produce chlorophyll which gives plants its green coloring.
