Pisum sativum var sativum
Who wouldn’t like a pea named Green arrow? This one is a straight shooter from England. Some like it hot, but peas like it cold.
Plant seeds every 3 inches in the garden 6 to 8 weeks before the last spring frost. When the seeds sprout, thin to one plant every 3 inches. Grow the peas on a trellis as the peas like to climb. Keep the ground wet after germination, and don’t feed too much or you’ll have more leaves than peas The 2 ft plants have 4 1/2 to 5 inch pods, each stuffed with 8 to 11 petite, deep-green peas. In 68 days you’ll have more than two peas in a pod!
