An heirloom variety from the late 1800s. Early Alaska Pea (Pisum sativum) produces top-quality pods that are often used in soups or for canning. Great for short season growing areas. A classic! (50-60 days)

Each packet contains approximately 75 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
This cool season crop thrives in sandy, fast draining soil and full sun. Sow in spring, no deeper than one inch and 2-3 inches apart in all directions. For bush types, space rows two feet apart; space climbing varieties in rows three feet apart or in double rows 6-8 inches apart with a trellis, fence, etc. Allow three feet between each double row.

Harvest pods when they are plump — usually three weeks after flowers appear — then shell and eat immediately; pods that are discolored or shriveled are past their prime. Harvest daily to keep plants productive.
