Availability: In stock

$1.75

SKU: 267

This pea does well in hot weather but doesn't like a chill - so in the north you are probably better off treating it as a bean rather than a pea. It does well in poor soil and due to the "nitrogen fixing" capabilities of legumes will actually improve the nutrition of the soil over time. The bush plants produce pods of white peas with a dark spot and can be used fresh or dried. Grows 24 to 36 inches tall. Approx 250 seeds.

PLANTING: Outdoors- Sow 1” deep and 1-2” apart in early spring with soil temperatures 40-70 degrees. Harvest- Pick every day for continuous harvest. Tips- Adding inoculant with rhizobium bacteria will increase yields. Plant again, two months before last frost date for smaller fall harvests. Varieties with vine lengths over 3 feet require support.
