Organic Frostmaster Peas  (60 days)

pisum sativum subsp. arvense

Frostmaster peas are an excellent nitrogen-fixing cover crop pea that breaks down quickly after incorporation into the soil.  With good winter-hardiness, they can be planted in the fall for over-wintering or in the spring. Produces large leaves on long vines. Often planted with grains for a climbing companion. Out produces the Austrian Winter pea in bulk and tonnage creating lots of biomass. In addition to its bulk, FrostMaster is a white pea, indicating the absence of tannin (the compound that causes bitterness and purple flowers), which makes it a sweeter pea that is a terrific forage crop for livestock. Seeding rate: 75-100 lbs/acre.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Organic Peas:

Heirloom organic peas like it cool, so you can plant them 3-4 weeks before your last frost date but besore the soil is well drained and raised in beds or rows.  Germination in these heirloom peas is as low as 45 degrees and it is often said that a cooler pea will be sweater.  Using soil inoculation will increase yields by boosting the available nitrogen in the soil.

For the highest yeildes of these delicous organic garden peas, make sure they have thin wire or string to climb.  This will give them more room to grow, thus collecting more sunshine and creating better yields.  Remember to continually pick the ripe pods as to encourage a longer harvest.

Organic Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
