2706 Pisum sativum
(Snow/Eat pea & pod) 55 days.
The last thing I planted at the little farm in the spring of ’08 was a short row of Schweizer Reisen peas. It was a bit of a warm snap, but it turned quickly cool for a few more weeks there-after. Schweizer Reisen never even noticed, popping up within 2 or 3 days and growing like gangbusters! This strain comes to Hope Seeds from Mike and Melba Rabinowitz of The Organic Farm in Newfoundland. The vines are tall and need staking, flowers are a gorgeous purple, and snow pea pods are large and delicately flavoured.
