Sunflower sprouts consist of slender white to yellow shoots, slightly thinner than a bean sprout, capped with two petite leaves. The dark green leaves are oval to oblong in shape with uniform, curved edges.
The leaf’s surface is also smooth, pliable, and thin, sometimes bearing a slight crease down the center. Attached to the leaf, the shoots are crisp, semi-aqueous, and succulent, offering a slightly chewy consistency. Sunflower sprouts have a pleasing texture, reminiscent of spinach, and contain a refreshing, vegetal, and slightly nutty taste with nuances of lemon, almond, and seeds.
