Popcorn shoots are small in size, averaging 5-10 centimeters in length, and have elongated slender leaves with a short stem. The flat, thin leaves are delicate and have smooth, even edges that connect into a bright white, skinny stem. The leaves can be light green or white to yellow, depending on exposure to light. Popcorn shoots are tender, moist, and crisp with a very sweet, mild corn flavor and grassy, tart undertones.
Popcorn shoots are the tiny, edible versions of corn grown from popcorn kernels and are grown at Fresh Origins Farm in San Diego, California. 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. Popcorn shoots are most popularly used by restaurant chefs as a sweet and crunchy garnish.
Popcorn shoots contain vitamins A, B, C, and E, iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium.
Popcorn shoots are best suited for raw applications as they cannot withstand high heat preparations. Their sweet flavor and unusual color allow the shoots to be commonly used as a garnish in both sweet and savory dishes. The shoots can be used on top of meat dishes, mixed into salads, scrambled with eggs, or even wrapped into burritos or sandwiches. Popcorn shoots pair well with cherry tomatoes, lettuce, dark, leafy greens, grilled sweet corn, meats such as chicken or fish, soy sauce, and wasabi. They will keep up to ten days when stored unwashed, covered to prevent light from penetrating the sealed container, and in the refrigerator.
