Cultivation advice

Sowing

Mangetout peas are sown as soon as the soil is ready and then continually from spring through summer. Sow the peas about 3 cm deep, possibly a little deeper when sowing in summer because of the need for moisture.

Spacing

Sow with a space of 5-8 cm between the plants and 35-50 cm between the rows. Peas can also be sown in double rows of 10-15 cm between the rows or scattered in broad bands. Tall and medium tall sorts need something to climb on.

Harvest

The mangetout is harvested before the seeds have developed appreciably.
Peas tolerate 1 degree or 2 of frost in autumn but easily become spotted and loose their crispness after a few nights of frost. All kinds of peas are eaten fresh, boiled or fried etc. They can also be dried, frozen or preserved.
