California Black-Eye #5 Pea

Long harvest period.


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.
  • Zone 3 - 9 annual.
  • Height 24 inches.
  • Germination 7 - 12 days.
  • Light Required Full sun.

This item ships in both Spring & Fall
