Pea – Oregon Sugar Pod

$3.48

This popular pea produces large, fleshy double pods with a deliciously sweet flavour. Pick them young while they are tender and stringless – perfect for steaming and adding to stir fries. Easy to grow, non-climbing dwarf vines grow to 76 cm (30″) tall and hold their pods up for easy picking. The mild-flavoured broad pods are 10-13 cm (4-5″) long, and frequently set in doubles. Produces heavy yields over a long period and shows good resistance to mildew.
