Mammoth Melting peas are the best! Plants produce prolific sweet and tender 5 inch pods. Appropriate for CSA and commercial farms as well as backyard gardening. Pods are uniform and tender, and the plant is resistant to wilt. Like all peas, they should be grown in the cool season and up a trellis or support system. Plant in fall or early spring in Southern California and warm climates.
Recommended Planting Requirements: Loose well-drained soil is the best for peas. Since peas are part of the Fabaceae family they can fix their own nitrogen. Therefore, they do not need a lot of fertilization. Organic matter can be added for a healthier harvest.
Growing Recommendation: Peas need cool weather and can be grown when there is stable cool weather. Succession planting is recommended for a prolonged harvest.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvesting your peas at the right time is very important to ensure quality and flavor. Checking your plant regularly for mature pods will not only keep the plant producing but will ensure that peas are not left to over mature and become starchy. Remove pods carefully as to not damage the plant. Peas can be kept in a cool dry place until used.
