The variety of thin, bright green pods can hold up to 11 peas each. Very easy to grow, matures in 70 days. The pods reach 5″ in length and grow on vines that are 24″ high. Gardeners are very fond of this species for its high yield and quality.
It is unknown when the peas were first grown, but the legend sends us to the court of Louis XIV, where the French gardener presented him in all its glory.

How to Grow Pea:

  • Sowing: Peas are adapted to growth in cool weather, do not like temperatures above 75 degrees F, and should not be transplanted. Plant Green Arrow garden pea seeds 4-6 weeks before the last frost or in an average soil temperature of at least 40 degrees F. Plant the peas 2 ″apart and 2″ deep in light soil and full sun. It is not recommended to plant peas next to onions or garlic.
    • Plant Spacing: 2-3″.

    • How and When to Harvest Peas: The most delicious and aromatic peas are young before the pods reach their full size. Harvest the entire crop at once, so that old pods do not stop new pods from emerging.
