* Golden pea tendrils and pea tendrils are grown from the same seeds. Golden pea tendrils are
grown in dark and pea tendrils are grown under light, therefore, the colors are different (yellow and
green, respectively). All the microgreens were grown organically except China rose radish and green
daikon radish microgreens, which were grown hydroponically.
