Description

Pea - Mammoth Melting - Pisum sativum var. sativum

Hardy Annual Heirloom. Mammoth Melting snap pea pods are used like snow pea pods. The thick, stringless, 4"-5" flat edible pods encase creamy-white peas. A high-yielding, early, uniform, and wilt resistant variety. The pods are excellent for stir-fries, steaming, freezing, or eating fresh.

Did You Know? Mammoth Melting pea vines produce white blossoms that are beautiful enough to use as cut flowers.

Soil & Water: Peas are not particular about soil, but prefer those with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 5.5-6.8. Provide moderate water until bloom, then lower the water rate.

Planting & Growing: Peas perform best in cool weather between 60-75F; growing season may be extended using shade cloth or frost fabrics. Presoak seeds to help prevent disease and to speed germination. This pea's wilt resistant 4'-5' tall vines should be trellised.

Harvesting & Storage: Peas are usually ready for harvest about 3 weeks after the flower appears and before peas are fully developed in the pods. Regular picking extends production.

Reviews

The only pea I'll grow!

I grew the Mammoth Melting pea for the first time this year along with another pea. I found these peas to be much sweeter (even as they aged) than the other peas that claimed to be sweet, and the Mammoth peas held on the vines longer. They were much more evenly sized than the other pea, and it was easy to tell when they were ready to pick. I will grow these peas from now on! Very happy to have found a great variety.
