Description – We’ve based our selection on sweet fresh flavours, long cropping and disease resistance to give you the best possible mangetout harvest from mid summer through to autumn. Oregon Sugar Pod and Kennedy are firm customer favourites and we know you’ll love the full flavour of Sweet Horizon – perfect for stir fries and steaming. Varieties in this mixture are – Kennedy, Oregon Sugar Pod and Sweet Horizon.
Sowing – Sow all of seed to ensure varieties provide you with the full harvesting season. Sow outdoors April to July 5cm (2in) apart, 5cm (2in) deep and in rows 75cm (30in) apart. Erect pea netting or twiggy sticks for support.
Growing – Water plants regularly, especially when in flower as this will improve the crop. Start picking pods just as the peas inside start to form. Regular picking will encourage further cropping and improve the flavour.
Harvest – June to September
