Buy pea (mangetout) 'Oregon Sugar Pod' pea ( mangetout ) / Pisum sativum 'Oregon Sugar Pod': A bumper crop of sweet mangetouts

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moist but well drained

    Producing a high yield of sweet and tender pods over a long period, this mangetout can be eaten immediately after picking (either as a treat or in salads), cooked as a side dish, or incorporated into a stir fry. The plants themselves show a good resistance to diseases, and as they are fast-growing, it's possible to start harvesting your crop in as little as 2 months after sowing.

  • Growing Instructions: Make a broad flat-bottomed drill 5cm deep and 10cm wide and place the peas in a double row. Protect from mice and slugs. If growing in containers, sow about 10 seeds to a 35cm pot. If support is needed, poke short twiggy peasticks in among the plants as they grow. Guttering is an ideal container for early sowings. Make drainage holes, then fill with compost and sow in rows. Plant outside by sliding the complete row into the ground without disturbing the roots.

  • Sow: March - June

  • Harvest: May - September

  • Approximate quantity: 250 seeds
