Have you ever harvested all your peas in one or two pickings and then wished there were more to come? Alderman shelling peas don't ripen Read More

Have you ever harvested all your peas in one or two pickings and then wished there were more to come? Alderman shelling peas don't ripen all at once - it's not something that's loved in commercial farming, but in home gardens, it can be to your advantage. The other striking thing about this pea variety is the height to which it can climb - 1.8m is not unusual. Provide a framework for it to climb on, plant it near tall wire fences, or train it up sunny garden walls. The peas themselves are sweet and tasty and pods can bear up to 11 seeds each.

  • Growing Information

    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.

    Can't give 5 stars until I have grown them out. All seeds germinated that I sowed.

    Excellent if the chickens hadn't decided to dig up the peas in the pots! There are a few that are surviving. Must think of a different strategy for next planting!
