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.
