Product Specification

Many young people today have never seen a pea-pod and only recognise peas if they come out of a plastic bag! We think this is a sad state of affairs because when grown fresh, peas are a totally different vegetable to those that are frozen. To get the sweetest flavour, peas are best cooked when picked young and cooked within 30 minutes of harvest, before the sugar has turned to starch. Douce Provence is the variety for autumn sowing or early spring sowing under cloches for the first pick of the season. This variety has the benefit of being fast growing and is the replacement for Feltham First. This pea can grow to a height of 75cm (30").,
Seed Count: 350,
WHEN TO SOW

November or late March to May
WHERE TO SOW
Spread seed evenly in a flat bottom drill 5cm (2") deep and 10cm (4") wide. Space rows 45cm (15") apart.
WHAT TO DO NEXT
Thin out seedlings as they grow if necessary and transplant the extra plants to another row.
MATURITY
June from an Autumn sowing, July to August from a Spring sowing
HANDY TIP
Use netting to protect the area after sowing and gradually raise up the nets as plants grow to give support.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE
A good source of Pro-Vitamin A and Vitamins C, B 1 and folic acid.
