Germ 7-14 days Heirloom 1891 Another good choice for the space efficient garden because of the long vine length. Climbing 4-5’ up a trellis, they bear big, easy to see and pick pods. Late maturing, they handle heat very well and produce huge, sweet, buttery tasting peas. Also known as Alderman. 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.
I really liked growing these - they were a little later to germinate but survived longer into the summer and really lengthened my harvest. I will certainly grow them again, but I will need a taller trellis than I had used.
