Cultivation advice


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.


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.


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.
