Pea Lincoln Seeds
Info: Pea `Lincoln` is a medium-sized variety (growing 65-75 cm in height) and therefore it requires little support. It has pretty blue-green foliage and produces good yields of 9-10 cm long pods with 8 to 10 peas each. These are delicate and have an outstanding sweet flavor. They are suitable for fresh picking and freezing.
Sowing & cultivation: Sow when the soil is warm to the touch, which will be some time between the middle of March and the end of April. Sowing depth: 4-5 cm. Peas require a sunny position with well-drained and nutrient-rich soil, but not acidic. Use bamboo canes, pea sticks, trellis, netting or chicken wire as a climbing support for the plants. Once you feel the seeds in the pod, the peas are ripe for harvest. The more you harvest, the more they will produce. As the containing sugar decomposes very quickly, they taste sweetest immediately after harvesting.
