Pea - Snow Pea 'Yukomo Giant'
This Japanese selection is the longest and tallest snow pea. Pods develop up to 14cm long from beautiful purple flowers. Ornamental and tasty. Edible pods.
Peas are tolerant of various soil types, although slightly alkaline, deep loams that have just grown a crop of tomatoes or potatoes are perfect. Their large seeds are easy to handle and germinate quickly, making them ideal for children to grow. Peas prefer the cooler months, as temperatures over 25 degrees reduce flowering.
