Pea – Ambassador

£1.89£3.50

Pea Ambassador is a semi-leafless type pea with dark green blunt pods that have a good tolerance to bad weather. This variety also has an excellent resistance to powdery mildew and fusarium wilt and will produce up to 7 or 9 peas per pod. The plant itself will reach a height of about 75cm.

Many young people today have never seen a pea-pod and only recognise peas if they come out of a plastic bag! We think this is a sad state of affairs because when grown fresh, peas are a totally different vegetable to those that are frozen. To get the sweetest flavour, peas are best cooked when picked young and cooked within 30 minutes of harvest, before the sugar has turned to starch.

Sowing Instructions – Sow Direct from April to May in a prepared flat bottom drill 5cm (2in) deep and 10cm, (4in) wide.

Space seeds 5cm (2in) apart throughout the drill allowing 60cm (24in) between the drills, then cover over with soil and gently pat down with the back of a rake. It is advisable to give some net protection against birds, once seedlings start to grow , then add some net support for plants to climb and hold the crop. Alternatively very early spring sowings can be made in February or March into a length of plastic gutter or modular cells under glass and then planted out against wires. Slide contents of gutter into a shallow drill made in the plot or space modular plants 10-15cm(4-6in) apart once hardened off.

Pick you delicious peas from July to September

Hints and Tips – As plants grow and the crops mature, stems can get quite heavy, especially after rain so plants may require extra tying to the support netting.

Number of seeds – Approx 200
