Great Peas!

Planted these last year and they were GREAT! They produced within thirty days and produced for weeks after that. Great tasting and pretty prolific. We keep them picked which might have extended their season

Super fast producer

Impressive! We were harvesting pods 3.5 weeks after these peas first sprouted (about 4 weeks after planting). Our growing conditions: Appalachian mountains of Tennessee, planted during warm weather in late April, heavy clay soil.

Not 30 days -- Did I buy seeds up North?!

They are causing a bit of a conflict in the garden, people are funny.

60+ days in Feb, 30 days is being given a 5th try.

The "fast start" is real as you want to keep planting other peas.

Stunted pods are happening now, might compost or burn.

However -- they are GREAT... and the leaves good too.

65 days to harvest

The peas are absolutely delish and the plants are around 30 inches tall as expected. My first small harvest was yesterday, though I direct sowed on Feb 21st. That was over 65 days. They germinated within a few days but took longer than 30 days to harvest as advertised. I have a smaller garden area and planned to replace these peas with okra by May 15th so I will only enjoy these tastey treats for about 2 weeks. I have more seeds so I will sow them earlier next spring for a longer harvest! I'm in coastal NC and didn't experience a single frost after sowing.

Pisum sativum Peas nourish our bodies with phytonutrients and, surprisingly, with omega-3 fatty acids. A hard-working crop, they improve the soil, fixing nitrogen that will feed future crops. Especially easy to grow in cool seasons. Snap peas have edible pods that are sweetest as the pods fatten up. High in vitamin C and niacin, they are most nutritious when fresh and briefly cooked. For the best nutrition and flavor, grow your own crops. Snap peas are the most productive of all the types of peas. Some snap peas develop strings that are easily removed by peeling them back as the pods are harvested.

Days to maturity are calculated from the date of direct seeding. Note: In areas with mild winters such as the maritime Northwest where peas can be planted in February, add 35-40 days.

• Peas are a hardy cool-season crop that can be grown in a variety of soil types
• Side dress plants with 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer and 1/2 cup bone meal per 10 row feet
• Climbing varieties should be trellised
• Most bush-type vines can be supported on a short trellis or allowed to grow as a mound
• Environmental stress, such as prolonged hot weather or lack of moisture, will reduce yields
• Extend your harvest through multiple sowings

Direct Sowing
• Peas may be sown as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring
• Cool temperatures lead to slow and erratic germination
• Sow peas in July for a fall crop
• In mild climates you can overwinter

Insects & Diseases
• Common insects: Pea aphid
• Insect control: Pyrethrin should be applied at seedling stage if leaf scalloping is observed
• Common diseases: Fusarium wilt (also called pea root rot), powdery and downy mildews, and pea enation mosaic virus (more common in Northwest and Northeast areas)
• Disease control: Zonix
• Disease prevention: 3-4 year crop rotation

Harvest & Storage
• For snap and shelling peas, start checking for maturity as soon as the pods begin to swell
• Harvest frequently to keep plants producing
• If left on the vine too long, the peas become starchy and the pods become tough
• Store at 36°F and 95% humidity
