A cross between snow peas and garden peas, the plump edible pods have a crunchy texture and sweet juicy flavour. Space saving, mature plants reach 65-80cm (26-32"). Container plants will be slightly smaller yet just as productive as garden sowings.
How to Grow
Peas are a cool weather crop and can be sown from early April through to mid-May when the soil temperature is between 10-16C (50-60F). Fall crops are possible in hardiness zones 6 & 7. Sow in double rolls spaced 25cm (10") with the seed 6.5cm (2.5") apart within the row and 1.25-2.5cm (1/2-1") deep. Space each set of double rows 75cm (2.5') apart. Peas can also be sown in blocks 120cm (48") square with the seeds spaced 6.5cm (2.5") apart within the block. Sow successive crops 10-14 days apart for extended harvests. Keep the soil evenly moist during the germination period or emergence will be spotty. Avoid the use of high Nitrogen fertilizers. Once flowering starts, it is important to keep the plants well watered to produce a good harvest. As the pods mature, pick daily enjoy their peak flavour and to encourage more pods to form. Careful cultivation between rows is recommended to increase harvest yield. Removing clover and other non-crop legumes from the vicinity of the pea crop will reduce pest problems.
