An heirloom from the late 1800s, Early Alaska garden peas produce good yields of delicious soup peas. Great for short season growing areas. (50-60 days)
Each packet contains approximately 75 seeds.
All garden peas require mild weather to grow their best. May be sown in the spring, 1/2 to 1 inch deep and several inches apart in all directions, several weeks before the last frost date. Most pea varieties need support, such as a trellis, net, fence, etc.
Try to time your garden so the plants mature a full crop before the arrival of really hot weather. For fall planting, sow seeds in late summer two months before the first frost date of autumn.
