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.
63 days. Very Popular. Dependable. 26-30″ vines have the pods near the top for easy picking. Great yields of 3-3.5″ pods are filled with 6-8 medium sized, sweet, tender peas each. Good tasting fresh, canned or frozen. An improved Little Marvel type. Treated or Untreated
Each 2.3 oz package treats a 40 foot row.
Each 8.7 oz can will treat 150 of row.
Each 1.5 oz package treats up to 8 pounds of seed.
Gardening soil inoculants are a type of bacteria added to the soil to “seed” the soil. In other words, a small amount of bacteria is added when using pea and bean inoculants so it can multiply and become a large amount of bacteria.The kind of bacteria used for legume inoculants is Rhizobium leguminosarum, which is a nitrogen fixing bacteria. These bacteria “infect” the legumes growing in the soil and cause the legumes to form the nitrogen fixing nodules that make peas and beans the nitrogen powerhouses they are.
