California Black-Eye #5 Pea Seed

Long harvest period.

  • 6-8 inch pods
  • Long harvest period
  • Easy to grow
Vining-type plant continues producing pods over a long harvest period, often right up to frost. It takes experience to judge the best time to pick for use as green shell peas, but the straw-colored dry pods are easy to distinguish when harvesting for dry bean storage. Soak overnight to reconstitute. Easy to shell as a dry bean, but not the easiest to shell for shell peas.
