Here at Fresh Origins, we pride ourselves on having the most extensive variety of Microgreens, Petite® Greens, Edible Flowers and Specialty Items available! Not only are our products exceptional in color, bursting with flavor with a great shelf-life, they are also of a higher quality, and that is due to the care and attention we give to our growing, harvesting and packing methods. Our flavors are as potent as can be because we grow in the right climate and each item is harvested daily, to order, at the peak of freshness!
Looking for something different than those Sweet & Sour, Salty & Savory and Floral microgreens and edible flowers? Well, our varieties do not end there. Earthy, spicy, peppery and ocean-like flavors are just as prominent on the farm because we want you to have it all!
FLAVORS OF THE OCEAN
One of the advantages of growing microgreens in San Diego, is the sunny and warm beach-worthy weather. Because the ocean is never far from our mind, we have compiled a list of refreshing, juicy and salty Microgreens inspired by the Sea! Micro Iceplant, Micro Sea Beans™ Petite Sea Grass, Ice Bud™ and Oyster Flower are just a few items that remind us of the ocean.
Glistening with brilliant sparkling beads of water, our Ice Bud™ instantly enhances seafood dishes with its crisp ocean flavors! These unique flower buds are succulent, juicy and salty like seawater – sure to surprise and excite taste buds!
An edible flower, fresh and salty like our Oyster Flower, is perfect atop your seafood plates with its unique blue and pink, bell-shaped buds. With its fresh oyster taste, it is sure to add an unexpected experience to your meal!
Earthy flavors like those found in our Micro Kale Tuscan™ and Cheese Leaf™ are paired well with soups, pastas and meat dishes. The Cheese Leaf™ is pungent, sturdy and versatile with a bold cheese flavor! Because of its sturdiness, it can be manipulated and used in many ways to mimic a cheese-like flavor and texture. Check out how Chef Mikel Anthony blends our Cheese Leaf™ into his agnolotti filling and then finishes the dish by laying another leaf on top for a beautiful presentation.
SPICY & PEPPERY
Some of our most potent items on the farm are those with strong peppery and spicy notes. Our Herb Crystals® Habanero, Micro Wasabi™, Micro Radish Daikon, Kinome Leaf and Micro Cress Pepper are some popular examples. Chef Mikel Anthony incorporates our Micro Wasabi™ into a puree for his dish by combining it with fish fumet, soy sauce and lime juice. Watch how he blends and aerates the Micro Wasabi puree, elegantly emulsified with the Vitamix Aer™ Disc. Such a great way to make use of this ultra-flavorful microgreen!
Fresh Origins Microgreens don’t just look the part, they bring a numerous amount of bold, sweet, salty and savory flavors to your plate, giving way for new ideas and techniques. We are here to elevate your plate and heighten the experience of your culinary creations, one microgreen at a time!
