Our Feedback
I have just tried growing your Victorian colossal pea, with fantastic results. We have a small garden and my wife found these thinking we would get more for the same space as the 'normal' peas. Problem is they are so heavily laden with pods they are tearing from the support frame and I have had to tie them up with soft string. A problem that is very welcome. I have just sown more in the greenhouse to plant out for a later crop. I have also tried your coloured carrots but too soon to try, but I will be ordering more seeds and greater variety in the future. Best wishes

Qty:

An extremely old vegetable (dating back to the 1590's or earlier) that is now seeing a resurgence in popularity - and deservedly so. This is a real gourmet delight, having a flavour that can be best described as a cross between the freshest of garden peas and asparagus.

Pods are best picked small, when they are around 1-2" (2.5 - 5 cm) in length, to avoid toughness. Many gardeners believe it is better and easier to pick the pods in the evening.

  • For early crops sow under protection from March-April in small pots and plant out 9-12" (23-30 cm) apart in rows 18" (45 cm) apart when hardened off.
  • For later crops and successional sowings sow April-June in drills 1" (2.5 cm) deep, 2 seeds per station 9-12" (23-30 cm)apart in rows 18" (45 cm)apart.
  • Whilst not essential, providing a little support for the plants will prove beneficial.
