What are the pros? easy to grow, delicious
What are the cons? needs support
This is my first year gardening with mixed success. These peas were one of the first things I've harvested and they are delicious. You can eat them in the pod whenever or let them really plump up in the pod and shell them. I soaked them until they sprouted before planting them. One complaint I have is that they really should be staked, I had them in a bed with horizontal netting for my corn and a few of the plants got a lot bigger than the others and took over most of the space, they did get around 3 feet tall, some a little higher. I think if I'd had some vertical support system, either stakes or trellising, more of my plants would have grown larger. However I am getting plenty of peas from the larger plants I have and am happy to have something to show my first year of gardening. I planted these on 4/1 and first peas were picked 6/18 and they're still growing with no sign of slowing. I would definitely recommend this as a first timer crop.
