Laxton's Progress No.9 Shelling Bush Pea, Pisello Nano, English


In Stock
Non-GMO
$2.69
Highly Productive, Easy To Grow, Classic Shelling Pea
This is the leading large-pod home garden shelling pea. A dwarf variety, Progress #9 needs no staking and is easy to grow. Great flavor and quality.
Harvesting: Shelling peas should be harvested when the pods are plump, about 3 weeks after flowering. Peas that are too mature are tough and will cause the plant to stop producing; therefore, harvest regularly when pods are at their peak. Use scissors to harvest or hold vine with one hand and pick the pods with the other; vines are fragile.
