Maincrop

This heritage variety was once regarded as the tastiest, most productive climbing pea that a gardener could grow. At lot has changed since the 1870’s but Pea 'Champion Of England' remains a fine cultivar which still deserves a place on today’s vegetable plots. Incredibly tall plants produce plenty of pods, each packed with up to 10 peas with a sweet and juicy flavour. Their tall habit means that you can produce a surprisingly good yield in a small area – perfect for gardens where space is at a premium. Height: 2.5m (8’). Spread: 25cm (10").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

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.
