Pea - Kennedy Mangetout
This mangetout wrinkled variety produces succulent, stringless (when young) pods. For the sweetest flavour the peas are best picked when the seeds are just swelling in the pods. An early variety which shows resistance to Fusarium, powdery mildew and other diseases.
Sow outdoors from March to June where they are to crop, in flat drills 15cm wide and 5cm deep, in well-cultivated, fertile soil. Sow in a zig-zag fashion along the drill, allowing 5cm between seeds. Fill the drill with fine soil and firm down gently. Allow 60cm between rows. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 10-18 days. Harvest from May to September.
