Description – British bred maincrop variety, outstanding in both the breeders and T&M trials. High resistance to both downy and powdery mildew. Ideal for successional sowings, especially in June/July for a quality late pick up to hard frost. Good vigour, dark green leaves and masses of 7-8 seeded, slightly curved, pointed pods, 2 pods per node.
Sowing – Sow March to July every 10 days for successional crops. Sow 5cm (2in) deep in flat-bottomed drills spacing 2.5-5cm (1-2in) apart, and in rows 75cm (30in) apart.
Growing – When plants are 10cm (4in) tall provide twiggy sticks for support,or netting. The peas will be ready to harvest around 12-13 weeks from sowing date, and regular picking will encourage further cropping.
Harvest – June to October
