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. Thrives in poor soil and due to the “nitrogen fixing” capabilities of legumes will actually improve the nutrition of the soil over time. Bushy plants produce pods of white peas with a dark spot and can be used fresh or dried. 200 seeds
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.
