FREE SHIPPING in the contiguous 48 United States

Stunning violet-blue pods are produced on lovely bush plants that do not require staking. These delicious peas are perfect for soups and stews, or pick small and these can be used as a snow pea. A great addition from Holland. (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.
