Pea Oregon Sugar Pod Seeds
Info: Pea `Oregon Sugar Pod` was bred in Oregon and is an excellent pea variety that is entirely edible, including the pod, which accounts for its French name, mange-tout, or "eat it all." The plants grow 90 to 120 cm tall and produce high yielding pods of 10 cm. The translucent, bright green pods are crisp, tender and full of flavour. The tiny peas inside are tender and sweet. This pea variety is one of the best choices for the short season of cooler climates as it is extremely disease resistant, to wilt, pea enation virus and streak virus.
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.
