Petite™ Sea Grass has thin, curving, needle-like leaves that have a natural salty flavor. The inherent salinity developed because of its affinity for growing near the seashore, similarly to sea beans and other maritime plants. Its texture is distinctly succulent and crunchy with a pleasant briny minerality and tart grassy notes. It is often compared to agretti, sharing a similar flavor of spinach, without the oxalic acid.
Petite™ Sea Grass is available year-round.
Sea Grass naturally grows along shore lines of bodies of salt water. Petite™ Sea Grass is part of a Trademarked line of specialty greens grown by Fresh Origins in San Marcos, CA. Designed to be slightly larger than microgreens, they are harvested after 2-4 weeks of extra growth.
Petite™ Sea Grass is a good source of iodine and vitamins A, B and C.
The crunchy texture and salty flavor of Petite™ Sea Grass is best showcased when served raw. It is often used similarly to sea beans and agretti, a naturally salty grass-like green that is native to Italy. The briny flavor of Petite™ Sea Grass pairs perfectly with seafood of all kinds, especially fish with a rich oil content. Mix with other succulents or salty Petite™ Greens such as Petite™ iceplant, sea beans, verdolaga, and New Zealand spinach to create a salty, citrus bed of greens for your seafood. Other flavor affinities include, lemon, garlic, olive oil, aged hard cheeses, cream, butter lettuce, mustard greens, nuts such as hazelnuts and pine nuts, tomatoes, peppers both mild and hot, earthy forest mushrooms, shellfish, and other fish such as ahi, albacore, sea bass and sardines.
Petite™ Sea Grass is especially popular in Japanese cuisine.
Sea Grass is originally from the seacoast of Japan. Petite™ Sea Grass and other Petite™ were first developed by Fresh Origins Farms in 2000. It is grown in temperature and humidity controlled greenhouses and harvested by trimming right above the soil and when they are between 2-3” in length.
