The perfect pea!

The 'Karina' pea (Pisum sativum) is a wrinkled, early, fertile variety that produces a high production of delicious peas. Each of the dark green pods contain 8-10 plump peas of excellent quality. The ‘Karina’ plants reach a height of approx. 60 cm - without needing a support. Peas can be used fresh as well as dried.

Planting+
Peas require no prior treatment although you could steep them in lukewarm water for 24 hours to accelerate germination. If they are left in water for longer (3-4 days) they will shoot a 1 cm root, after which you really must sow them. Harvesting will be one week earlier if you do this.
Care+
Earth up your pea plants when they reach 12 cm in height. Tall and medium height pea varieties require a climbing support. To do this, insert a pole at both ends of a row and span large gauge chicken wire between the poles - as high as 1.2 metres for medium height and 2.0 metres for taller ones. The pea's tendrils will attach themselves and climb up. Tip: place the chicken wire before sowing your peas! Provide extra water in dry periods only and keep the bed free of weed to encourage your peas to thrive.
Specifics+
Pea varieties are selected for the peas, the pods are not edible. The reverse is also true - mange tout are selected for the tasty pod, tender and free of thread. Pea pods do therefore tend to have a 'thread'. Biologically speaking though, peas and mange tout are basically the same. There are 2 kinds of pea: wrinkled and round. Wrinkled varieties are sown in March-April. They have a sweeter taste and do not mind the early summer heat. The round-seeded peas can be sown very early (February –March) and have an aromatic flavour Medium and tall varieties bring a greater yield than dwarf varieties and involve a little more work.
