Popcorn shoots are small in size, averaging 5-10 centimeters in length, and have elongated slender leaves with a short stem. The flat, thin leaves are delicate and have smooth, even edges that connect into a bright white, skinny stem. The leaves can be light green or white to yellow, depending on exposure to light. Popcorn shoots are tender, moist, and crisp with a very sweet, mild corn flavor and grassy, tart undertones.
Popcorn shoots contain vitamins A, B, C, and E, iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium.
Popcorn shoots are best suited for raw applications as they cannot withstand high heat preparations. Their sweet flavor and unusual color allow the shoots to be commonly used as a garnish in both sweet and savory dishes. The shoots can be used on top of desserts, mixed into salads, scrambled with eggs, or even wrapped into burritos or sandwiches. Popcorn shoots pair well with cherry tomatoes, lettuce, dark, leafy greens, grilled sweet corn, meats such as chicken or fish, soy sauce, and wasabi.
