Peas also freeze well for later use and are a good source of protein, vitamins, fiber and folic acid. Preferring cooler growing conditions, they do best in the spring and fall garden.

Fun Fact

Peas are never as sweet as right after harvest. To maximize their sweetness, peas must be eaten or frozen as quickly as possible.

What is the best type of fertilizer for growing peas?

Garden Nurture Soil Inoculant boosts bean and pea yields with nitrogen-fixing bacteria that promotes stronger root systems and larger harvests.

Southern Peas

Also known as cowpeas, Southern Peas are traditionally known and loved in the South, but also grow exceptionally well in the North. Attractive flowers are followed by easy-to-pick peas that set at the tops of the plants. Many Southern peas can be harvested green and used like snap beans or allowed to mature on the plant for dried peas. Southern peas also make great cover crops, adding valuable nitrogen back into the soil. A good source of protein and one of the best sources of dietary fiber available, they are also very high in folates, a form of vitamin B important in the prevention of anemia and cancer.

Pea pests and diseases

Peas require no sprays to control insects and disease. Southern peas are generally trouble free and easy to grow, but Bean Beetles can be a problem when seedlings are young. We recommend Bulls-Eye™ Bioinsecticide for these pests.
