Organic Lincoln-Shelling Pea Seeds

Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Lincoln-Shelling Pea seeds take 70 days to reach maturity. This heirloom shelling pea is one of the best tasting peas. Great fresh or frozen and holds well in hot weather for an extended picking season. Produces masses of medium sized pods containing 7-8 peas each. Short vines reach 75 cm and do not require support.

Planting Instructions

Sow peas in a well drained area as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. Seed thickly in a 10 cm band spacing seeds about 2.5 cm apart and 1.5-2.5 cm deep. Do not thin as peas like company. A good compost or organic fertilizer will increase yields. Tall varieties will need twine or mesh to support them. Provide pea brush (twiggy branches stuck in the soil) for shorter varieties to climb on for easier picking. Pick often to keep productive and try not to eat them all while picking! Peas are at their sweetest in cool weather so spring and fall crops are possible. Sow fall crops about 2 months before first fall frost.
