Micro Pea Leaves are grown in the greenhouses of Blue Moon Acres in Buckingham, Pennsylvania. Sweet, crunchy, and bursting with the flavor of freshly-picked first-of-the-season peas, pea leaves are an ideal addition to a salad, can be eaten alone, or sautéed like spinach with garlic and olive oil.
Blue Moon Acres has grown micro greens for the past 23 years using natural methods. No chemical pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers or growth regulators are used in our growing practices. Throughout the years, owners Jim and Kathy Lyons have remained dedicated to growing the highest quality specialty greens with the least amount of environmental impact. (from Blue Moon Acres)

Hearty sprouts such as mung bean can be kept in a sealed plastic bag in the fridge, but more delicate varieties such as pea shoots and alfalfa sprouts need ventilation and should be refrigerated in the plastic containers they're sold in. They should keep for 2 to 3 days.
Freezing Mung Bean Sprouts
If you plan to cook with hearty mung bean sprouts, you can store them in an airtight container in the freezer for several months. Don't bother thawing; toss them right from the freezer into the pan.
