PEAS, SHELL Approximately 1,500 seeds per pound.
PLANTING: Plant in early spring as soon as soil can be worked up. Young pea plants can tolerate a frost. Work up soil until
fine. For increase in yield, add Bradfield fertilizer at 5 lbs per 100′ plus some lime. Coat pea seeds with a pea inoculant. Place
seeds 1″ deep, 1.5-2″ apart in a row spacing of 30-36″. Taller types will need support. Keep weed free for best results.
HARVEST: Pick pods when seeds have enlarged in pod, before sides bulge. Hold vines while picking to avoid tearing off vine.
Use fresh, can or freeze. You will need 2 lb per 100′ row or 120 lb per acre.

the seeds have developed, but not hard. Snap like green beans.
PEAS, SUGAR OR SNOW PEA
Plant the same as shell peas. Sugar or snow peas taste best when picked at an immature stage when pod is
still flat, before seeds develop. Use raw, cooked or can or freeze.
