Green Arrow Pea Seeds



Up to 11 ultra-sweet peas in every plump pod

This shelling pea is delicious fresh or may be frozen for use all winter.

Days to Maturity: 70 from direct sow

You'll enjoy big harvests from this vigorous shelling pea. A main-season English pea that often sets double pods, Green Arrow (also known as Green Shaft) is an old and well-respected name for generous yields of large, tasty seeds that can be eaten fresh or frozen.

This plant grows quickly to 24 to 28 inches high. Stake it to hold up its bounty of plump 4-inch-long green pods, each packed with up to 11 delicious seeds. Many gardeners use a pea fence or trellis with pea plants on either side to save space. Widely adapted, Green Arrow tolerates powdery mildew and fusarium wilt, which improves the size of its yields and the quality of its crop.

Peas are a cool-season crop, easy to grow and very quick to harvest. Sow the seeds outdoors (they do not like to be transplanted) as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring (1 to 2 weeks before last anticipated frost date is a good rule of thumb). Direct sow the seeds 1 to 2 inches apart and 1 to 1½ inches deep. In warm southern and western climates, peas are also ideal as a fall crop started in late summer.

These were so good, we only got them to the dinner table one time. We ate them regularly while working in the garden. Should just call them breakfast.

Known as Hurst Greenshaft in England, this pea produces abundant pods filled with very sweet peas. Very reliable, excellent germination, can't speak highly enough about this variety.
