Caruther's Purple Pod

Pisum sativum
HOW TO GROW PEA

Cool weather crop, direct sow in 4–8” wide trench 1 to 1.5” deep in early spring as soon as soil can be worked, space 1 to 1-1/2”. When frogs start croaking the soil is warm enough to plant peas. For early spring and dry fall sowings, presoak in water in large open bowl or bucket until peas are swollen and radical (1 cm root) is visible but has not broken free. Replace water 2-3 times daily and stir frequently for enough oxygen, mix seed with enough dry soil to dry and easy to handle. Trellis varieties over 3’ tall. Set trellis net or chicken wire on poles 6’ apart. Successional crops, sow peas every 10–14 days. Sandy well drained soils are best. Pick all pods at harvest to encourage new pea growth. Soil pH 6-7.5. Hardiness zones 5. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 115-140 seeds per ounce. Federal germination standard: 80%. Pea seed will retain 50% viability for 3 years when stored in cool, dry, dark, conditions. Isolation distance for seed saving: 50 feet.
