Pea Waverex (Petit Pois)
Item Number: 30335
Many young people today have never seen a pea-pod and only recognise peas if they come out of a plastic bag! We think this is a sad state of affairs because when grown fresh, peas are a totally different vegetable to those that are frozen. To get the sweetest flavour, peas are best cooked when picked young and cooked within 30 minutes of harvest, before the sugar has turned to starch.
Waverex (Petis Pois_ produces masses of pods containing tiny, incredibly sweet flavoured peas. They are so sweet they can be eaten raw in salads but are equally as delicious when cooked. The plant will grow to a height of about 60cm.
Seed Count: 250
WHEN TO SOW
April and May.
WHERE TO SOW
Flat bottom drill 5cm deep and 10cm wide.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Space the seeds 5cm apart throughout the drill. Allow 60cm between drills. Cover with soil.
These tiny peas may be a fiddle to pod but well worth the effort. As they are so sweet, they are delicious, raw in salads.
A good source of vitamins A, B1, C and Folic Acid.
