Description

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.

  1. Ed

    I planted two each 50 foot rows of about peas for the 2018/19 winter season. 11/3/18 and 12/4/18. I experienced excellent germination and growth. Today, 1/12/19, I saw my first couple of flowers, so I expect to be harvesting peas next February. Seeds were planted using a Earthway seeder into soil amended with compost. The peas have received two spray applications of organic fish emulsion fertilizer and no insecticides.

    This is continuation of my review above. I have been harvesting snow/new peas for the past month. They are very sweet and crispy. My customers love them and I sell all that I harvest. Great peas, very prolific.
