Green peas are a valuable source of protein, iron, and insoluble fiber. Insoluble fiber helps to reduce serum cholesterol thus reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Peas are eaten when fresh or used in a multitude of recipes to add taste to soups, salads, or stews.
Sprouts in: 1 - 2 weeks
Harvest in: 5 - 8 weeks
Dwarf Pea usually germinates in two weeks and is a heat-sensitive plant that grows best at 18 - 24 °C / 64 - 75 °F. If the seed has mold on it and has turned soft and milky it will not sprout.
- There is no need to thin Dwarf Pea plant pods - just let them thrive!
- As Dwarf Pea is a self-pollinating plant, it does not require pollinating.
Tip! Pea flowers taste exactly like fresh peas - ideal for garnishing. If you use sprouts and flowers, do not expect to harvest any actual peas.
If you allow your pea plants to grow freely, expect your first pea pods to mature about 35 days after planting.
In case mature plants lean to one side, feel free to support them with reed straws. Please find handmade straws from our website under accessories.
White layers and spots are normal for mature dwarf pea plants. But if there is still confusion and probability that this white mass could be a disease, please let our gardening team know about it.
