A very productive and delicious garden pea! A shelling pea, each pod is filled with sweet green pearls. Vines reach up to 6 feet with support, and large pods yield 8-10 peas each. Late maturing, tolerant to heat and a light frost.

Plant seeds directly into the garden starting 3-5 weeks before average last frost date or as soon as the soil can be worked. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 50-70 degrees. It can take seed about 2 weeks to germinate at 50 °F, less as the soil warms. For taller varieties, use crop supports such as a trellis or chicken wire to keep vines upright. Planting double rows of peas on each side of a trellis will result in a more productive harvest. For a fall crop, sow about 2 months before frost. Keep seeds well watered to encourage good germination.
