About- This local favorite is one of our top recommended varieties of hull peas. Productive plants produce extra long, fancy pods that are easy to shell and most contain 8 to 9 delicious sweet peas. Can be grown with or without support. 

When and Where to Plant- Select a sunny location and plant in early spring, as soon as the soil can be worked. Cultivate soil and enrich with vegetable food and organic matter. Continue planting at 2 week intervals until mid-spring. Plant again in late summer for a late fall crop. For better germination firm soil over seed.

Care and Harvest- Grows best in a soil with a pH between 6 and 7, and just a light application of fertilizer. Plants that grow over 24" tall are easier to maintain and pick if they are trellised. Water at ground level to reduce the probability of disease. Pick when seeds have enlarged in the pod and are still bright green. Hold vine while picking to avoid tearing the plant.
