Salty Salicornia “Sea Beans”

Also known as sea asparagus and samphire, this vegetable commonly grows in coastal salt marshes and along the shores of salt lakes. These beans are grown hydroponically which produces a higher yield vs foraged, and are sold with root balls attached to extend shelf life.

They have a crunchy texture and their fresh, salty flavor pairs well with salads, pasta and seafood. If your operators are looking for a point of differentiation and something new, Salicornia is it. Add it to your regular asparagus order.
