DIRECT SOW WHEN SOIL TEMPERATURE IS ABOVE 45°F
5-7 WEEKS BEFORE LAST FROST
Sow Peas continuously for 2 months to have a steady crop. Stop sowing seeds when temperatures are consistently above 75°F. If you are in Zone 8 or warmer, sow Peas in the fall for a winter crop instead.
The use of stakes or trellis is recommended.
Typically sown in a double row.
Great peas for a variety of uses, from split-pea soup to fresh peas as a side dish.
Harvest your peas when they reach maturity at around 68 to 70 days.
Snap the pods off, throw them in a bucket and start snapping the shells open to expose the bright green peas. These peas work well for fresh eating, canning and freezing.
To harvest peas for use in your next seed crop, let them dry completely on the vine. If the pods are not completely dried by the time first frost arrives, pull the plants out by the root and hang them in a cool dry place for several weeks.
When the pods have completely dried, break them open to expose seeds and safely store for next season’s crop.
