•American grown seeds
•Days to Maturity: 58 Days
•USDA Zones: 3-12
With so many different types of peas (shelling, snow, etc), it's hard to know what to grow. This heirloom variety is a shelling pea which means that you should allow it to reach maturity and then you'll "shell" the peas removing the pea shell and only use the peas inside. Green arrows are a vining pea variety, but only grows to 24-28" making it an amazing choice for a home garden where space is often limited. Each pea 5" pod will hold upwards of 11 peas each. It also is extremely easy to grow and will thrive in cold weather. Likewise, this is an excellent freezer variety allowing you to store them for future use. It's just a great all around pea.

Because peas thrive in cool weather and do not transplant well, Green Arrow garden pea seeds should be planted outside 4-6 weeks before the last frost or when the average soil temperature reaches at least 40 degrees F. If planting later, remember that most peas won't tolerate weather above 75 degrees F. If planting peas in your soil for the first time, keep in mind that a powder inoculant of beneficial bacteria should coat the seeds. Plant the peas 2" apart and 2" deep in light soil and full sun. For an early spring crop, plant in the same manner in the fall. Peas do not do well when planted near onions or garlic. Before they bloom, pea plants need to be kept moist but not wet; after blooming, slightly increase the watering. Remove weeds carefully to avoid disturbing the plants; mulch may be helpful to conserve moisture and control weeds.
