Pea – Jumbo
This is a maincrop variety producing a very good crop over a long picking period on vigorous plants. It features long, straight, long, pointed 13cm pods containing up to 10 plump and sweet tasting peas. It is resistant to Fusarium race 1.
Sow from March to June every 10 days for succession. Sow seed 5cm apart, 5cm deep in flat-bottomed drills spacing about 2.5-5cm apart, and in rows 75cm apart. When plants are 10cm tall, provide twiggy sticks for support. Regular picking will encourage further cropping.
