Outstanding pod length - 4 to 4½ inches, with 9-11 peas in a pod. Double podded too, it is a super heavy-yielding variety. Only 28 -30 inches tall, with all the pods in the top 10-12in - no more backache. A second early, wrinkle seeded variety, which matures in 100 days from sowing. Resists downy mildew and fusarium wilt. And the taste! Has to be eaten to be believed. Hgt. 70-75cm (28-30in).
Suitable For Freezing Crops in 70 Days.
Sowing Instructions. Sow from March to June every 10 days for succession in flat bottomed drills 5cm (2in) deep, 15cm (6in) wide spacing the seeds roughly 5cm (2in) apart. Allow 90cm (36in) between rows.
Growing Instructions. When 7.5-10cm (3-4in) tall provide twiggy sticks for support. Watering when in flower will improve the crop. The peas are ready to pick around 14 weeks from the sowing date.
Aftercare Instructions. Regular picking will improve cropping.
