Description

Jumbo Pods are Super-sweet and Early to Mature!

This AAS Winner is tops is taste, size, yield, and culture!

60 days from direct-sowing.

If there is a better English Pea anywhere than Mr. Big, we have yet to hear of it! This AAS winner is simply tops, with larger-than-life flavor, size, and yields! It's easy to grow and superbly disease resistant. What more can a pea offer?

These plump, easy-to-shell pods reach 4 to 4½ inches long, crammed with fat peas (about 8 per pod) boasting a rich, sugary flavor. They arise early on indeterminate plants that show great resistance to Fusarium Wilt Race 1 and Powdery Mildew. And the pods stay colorful and firm on the plant, even if it takes you a bit longer than usual to harvest them!

Mr. Big is not fussy about growing conditions, but you will have to stake it. With yields like this, it needs some support! Remember to chop up and plow under the whole plant after harvest. Mr. Big is a legume, and will build your garden soil by fixing nitrogen. Always "re-plant" all your beans and peas, and you will have top-quality garden soil for next year and beyond!

Easy to grow, peas love cold weather, so plant as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. Direct-sow seeds 1 to 2 inches apart and 1 to 1½ inches deep. Peas are also ideal as a fall crop started in late summer. To conserve space and simplify harvesting, sow in double rows with a trellis between rows.

my favorite for 'bang for your buck' harvests. large plentiful pods, big firm peas. always a staple in my garden. My zone is 9a, with only 6 weeks or so of frost, so I harvest late fall, winter and spring. Mr Big, Blondie, and Lincoln make a fabulous trio.
