Onward pea is the most popular of garden peas. It has plump, blunt ended pods which are produced in pairs and contain large peas of a super flavour. The plant itself can grow to a height of 75cm.
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.
Pea Onward 1kg is approximately 3170 seeds.
