Soak 1/3 to 1 cup of peas in cool water for 8-12 hours.

Drain off soak water. Do not ever soak again.

Rinse thoroughly.

Drain Thoroughly.

Rinse and Drain with cool water every 8-12 hours.

Bean Sprouts don't need light. Keep your Sprouter in a low light location.

Harvest on day 2 or 3, when most of the beans have short roots. Refrigerate your crop.

Yields approximately 1 Cup (1/2 lb.) of Sprouts

Seed Prep Measure out 1/2 Cup of seed* Rinse your seeds to remove dust or plant debris.

Soak Transfer your seeds - if necessary - into your Sprouter, or a bowl. Add 2-3 times as much cool (60-70 degree) water. Mix seeds up to assure even water contact for all. Allow seeds to Soak for 8-12 hours.

Sprouting Empty the seeds into your Sprouter (if necessary). Drain off the soak water. You can use it - it has nutrients in it.

Rinse thoroughly with cool (60-70°) water. Drain thoroughly.

Set your Sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses. This is where your sprouts do their growing. We use a counter top - in the corner of our kitchen, but where the sprouter won't get knocked over by cats, dogs, kids or us. We don't mind the indirect sunlight or the 150 watts of incandescent light, because light just does not matter much. Your Bean Sprouts will never have leaves, and a plant can only perform photosynthesis when it has leaves. Until then light has little if any effect, so don't hide your sprouts. Plus, they like air-circulation.

Rinse and Drain again in 8-12 hours. And, once more... Rinse and Drain again in 8-12 hours. And, perhaps once more... Rinse and Drain in 8-12 hours.

We stop no later than here. We like our sprouts small. Typically, we sprout for just 2-4 Rinse and Drain cycles. At that point most of the seeds will have sprouted tiny (1/16 - 1/4 inch) roots. That's the way we like our Bean Sprouts.

Depending on your climate and the time of year you are sprouting and most importantly your personal preference - You may Rinse and Drain again at 8-12 hour intervals for up to 6 days. We Do Not recommend doing so, unless you're doing a science experiment. Grow them for as long as you like. As long as you continue to Rinse and Drain every 8-12 hours. If you grow for a week you'll get some plants growing as well as roots. Experiment! Have Fun! It's All Good - if occasionally inedible @;-D

As always, we suggest that you taste your crop at EVERY Rinse - including the very first - just after the Soak period. The soaked seeds are already alive and super nutritious - and - they are without enzyme inhibitors (a very good thing indeed!) so they'll digest themselves and nourish you. So taste them often and find out for yourself when they are most delicious! That's when they're done.

Harvest Your sprouts are done 8-12 hours after your final Rinse. Be sure to Drain them as thoroughly as possible after that final Rinse. The goal during the final 8-12 hours is to minimize the surface moisture of your sprouts - they will store best in your refrigerator if they are dry to the touch.

Refrigerate Transfer your sprout crop to a plastic bag or the sealed container of your choice and put them in your refrigerator. We offer Produce Storage Bags that will extend shelf life substantially.

*Seed to Use

* If using Sproutpeople's Single Harvest Pack - use the whole bag. It will produce a crop of approximately 8 ounces.

These seeds yield approximately 2:1 - so in theory you can start with up to as 1/2 as much dry seed as your Sprouter has capacity. If you are new to sprouting, or new to this crop; we advise that you start with 1/4 - 1/3 of your Sprouter's capacity so that your sprouts have more room.

Dry Pea Carnival awaits Soaking.

12 hours later... Soaked, Rinsed and Drained.

12 hours later... Another Rinse/Drain cycle.

12 hours later... Another Rinse/Drain cycle. You can be done now. They're small but perfect.

12 hours later... Another Rinse/Drain cycle. If you weren't done last time, stop now....

Or go another 12 hours - if you like 'em even longer.

Many shapes, many sizes, many Peas! Mix them all together and you get Pea Carnival. Often overlooked due to its simplicity, this mix is possibly the most beautiful of all, when sprouted. Kids like this one. When the sprouts are let grow for 4 or 5 days they will form long roots and shoots with the Pea in-between. Apparently there is some fun in pulling them apart while holding the pea in your teeth which only children truly appreciate. Maybe its a Midwestern kid thing =:-)

If there is anything unique about our current seed, we will tell you about it here. Seed Shelf Life: 5 years. Store in cool, dark, dry spot. Store in freezer to extend shelf life.

I love to snack on these by themselves and add to salads for a nice crisp crunch. Super super easy and quick to sprout.

This mix is a visual treat with beautiful colors, and I like munching on them as a snack. I also really like having the diversity of five different kinds of peas, four of which I hadn’t heard of. I appreciate that Sproutpeople gives me access to more variety of foods than I can normally find.

This is a great mix in stir fry and with oil/vinegar as a salad. My tummy appreciates if peas are cooked or pickled (vinegar) just a bit. So pretty and tasty.

These sprouts start getting picked at right after soaking, and usually only a few handfulls make it to harvest time! So delicious!


I've grown these as sprouts and shoots, and I'm in love. As sprouts, they're great raw, but also a happy addition to soups and falafel (I use 8 oz garbanzos and 4 oz. peas, presprouted weight). As shoots, we've been unable to get any into the skillet to try a stir fry, as the children keep eating them directly out of the trays. I'm blaming the children.

Nuty -chewy - I mix blueberries with all greek yogurt and cottage cheese - few walnuts and these Great Sprouted Peas on top - one Truvia - and wallah.........they taste like coconut and you have an instant Sundae without sugar and calories.

I like this mix a lot. It is just peas but it's pretty - or maybe cute is a better description. I dunno why I like this one so much 'cuz I like a lot of the other mixes they sell too and they have all sorts of rocking' stuff and awesome flavors but pea carnival is just so darned cute and fast to grow too.
