A beautiful variety with attractive purple flowers and dark purple pods, if picked young it can be eaten as a delicious mangetout or left to mature into a pea. The Blauwschokker variety can grow as tall as 1.5 meters tall with the correct support.

Luis's suggestion, "An extremely rapid growing variety which needs support straight away, for me they were very frost resistant. The flowers and fruits really are stunning adding a splash of colour to the green foliage"

  • 5 seeds per packet
  • Plant where peas have not been grown for 2 seasons.
  • Sow from early Mar 2” deep in 6” wide rows 2 inches apart.
  • Protect immediately from birds.
  • Provide support from when the plant reaches 3 inches tall.
  • Start picking the pods just as the peas inside start to form as Mangetout or leave to mature for shelling peas.
  • Early and regular picking will also improve the cropping and flavour of the peas.
