Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

A novel pea which not only tastes great but looks fabulous too. Pea 'Blauwschokker' has bi-coloured sweet pea like flowers with mauve wings and a darker deep purple centre. The pods themselves are dark purple, making them easy to spot and pick as well as fun to eat small as mangetout. Alternatively allow them to mature into full-sized peas. Grow alongside an ornamental sweet pea for added interest.

Plant out peas in moist, fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Allow a distance of 75cm (30") between rows.
Support pea plants with twiggy sticks, wire or netting as they grow, and use fine netting to protect pea crops from birds and pea moth damage. When growing peas, regular and thorough watering especially when in flower will improve crop yields. Harvest peas around 14 weeks after sowing when the pods have swollen. Regular picking will encourage further cropping.
