(3 customer reviews)

Moreish shelling peas to cook or snack on raw

Some of the old-but-good varieties are hard to improve on, and Massey Gem Peas are among them! This variety is still a big favourite with market gardeners who like the rapid crop, disease and cold tolerance, and reliable harvest. Home gardeners will gain just as much pleasure from growing Massey Gem shelling peas. Thanks to their compact habit, they don't need a lot of space - unless you want a lot of peas - and who doesn't love them?

How to Sow

Peas don’t like to be transplanted, so sow them directly where they are to grow. Poke holes in the soil, planting one to two seeds per planting station. Bear in mind that they will need support to climb. Planting next to fences makes staking simple.

How to Harvest

The younger peas are when you harvest them, the tenderer they will be. Pick your peas before the pods begin to swell with seeds.
