Item details

Approximately 500 pea seeds per packet

One of the best early peas for freezing. The 3-1/2 inch pods are filled with 6 to 7 peas that are tightly wrapped in a dark green pod. The peas are tender, sweet and dark green in color making them very good for freezing or used as fresh. The strong vines grow to about 28 inches in length and produce many double pods near the top of the vines. Plants are adapted to a wide range of growing conditions
About Early Frosty Pea: Though no one really knows when peas were first cultivated, historians can be certain that people grew them for food by the Bronze Age. Legend has it that fresh peas first became popular when a French gardener introduced them to the court of Louis XIV. Because they could be dried and stored for long periods of time, people in colonial times also valued this vegetable. Horticulturalists and gardeners alike have continued cultivating peas of all varieties and sizes.
Early Frosty Pea Germination: Because peas thrive in cool weather and do not transplant well, they should be planted outside 4-6 weeks before the last frost or when the average soil temperature reaches at least 40 degrees F. If planting later, remember that most peas won't tolerate weather above 75 degrees F. If planting peas in your soil for the first time, keep in mind that a powder inoculant of beneficial bacteria should coat the seeds. Plant the peas 2" apart and 2" deep in light soil and full sun; plant in double rows 6-8" apart to allow for a trellis. For an early spring crop, plant in the same manner in the fall. Peas do not do well when planted near onions or garlic.
Growing Early Frosty Pea Seeds: As the vines begin growing, a trellis will support their climbing habit; any kind of support 5-6' tall should be sufficient. Before they bloom, pea plants need to be kept moist but not wet; after blooming, slightly increase the watering. Remove weeds carefully to avoid disturbing the plants; mulch may be helpful to conserve moisture and control weeds.
Harvesting Early Frosty Pea: Shelling peas generally taste best when harvested as soon as the pods have filled out, but before they reach their full size. Remove even the pods that have passed their prime, since old pods left on the vines will stop the production of new pods. Early Frosty peas are good for freezing, hold their quality well for storing, and are one of the easiest to shell.
Saving Early Frosty Pea Seeds: To save seed from garden peas, let the pods mature fully on the vine; they will turn brown, and the peas should rattle inside when they have dried completely. Pick them individually, or pull the entire plant and hang it upside down in a warm, dry location to finish drying. Shell the peas after 1-2 weeks of drying. Store the seed in a cool, dry place for up to three years.
