Pea - Progress #9 - Pisum sativum var. sativum

Hardy Annual Heirloom. This is the leading large-pod home garden shelling pea. Its vigorous dark-green plants produce 4"-5" pods with 6-9 large, wrinkled dark-green peas. It is an early producer with consistently heavy yields. A dwarf variety, Progress #9 needs no staking and is easy to grow. Great flavor and quality.

Soil & Water: Peas are not particular about soil, but prefer those with plenty of added organic matter and a pH pf 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. Progress #9 is wilt resistant. Its dwarf vines require no staking.

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.

Did You Know? Peas are rich in vitamin C, A, K, and many minerals.

Customer Reviews

Outstanding!! Delicious and vigorous!

The peas grew exceptionally well using the Back to Eden gardening method. Very productive, disease resistant plants. Tasty as snow peas when the pods are immature. Very sweet when mature. The best peas I have ever had. I live in Zone 5 and I planted them as early as I could and they thrived through several frosts.

I found them very sweet and tender eaten raw when the peas are not quite mature.

I definitely highly recommend them. Seeds are easy to save too.
