Planting & Care

Soil and 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 and Growing: Peas perform best in cool weather between 60-75°F; growing season may be extended using shade cloth or frost fabrics. Presoak seeds to help prevent disease and to speed germination. Green Arrow is wilt and mildew resistant. Grow on a trellis for support.

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.
