Organic Frostmaster Peas
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.
