Peas – Ambassador (Organic)
A top quality pea for cooking and freezing, widely used in home gardens and commercial production. Big juicy peas in a pod. What could possibly be more exciting than growing your own peas to go with a traditional dinner. Ambassador is robust, vigorous, productive and delicious. It won the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit in 1993 which was reconfirmed in 2005 and is one of the most widely used peas of its kind.

Peas – Heraut (Organic)£2.35 – £4.20 Choose pack size
Peas – Heraut (Organic)
Very vigorous, tall-growing mangetout with violet flowers and ever-so-sweet pods. Heraut are delicious raw, when picked young and still flat, steamed or stir-fried, fantastic in salads and you can eat them ‘pod and all’. They produce an early crop of sugar snap peas on productive and hardy plants. If picked regularly, more growth is encouraged.
This variety is quick to be ready to harvest and has a great taste, too. So much so that we couldn’t resist snacking on it while growing it.

Peas – Blauwschokker (Organic)
A stunning heritage pea variety with dark purple pods and bright green peas inside. This ornamental pea is an old European heritage variety. It has attractive pink flowers followed by lots of dark purple pods that contain tender, sweet, green peas.
The delicious peas can be eaten fresh green and podded or allowed to mature for shelling and drying.
Being mostly culitvated in North Germany and Holland, it is a robust and very productive variety. Traditionally this pea is eaten as a dry pea in a soup or stew but it’s also very tasty and tender when eaten fresh.

Peas – Sweet Horizon (Organic)£2.30 Add to basket
Peas – Sweet Horizon (Organic)
Mangetout pea variety with tasty, flat, almost stringless pods with a long harvest window. Sweet Horizon will grow up to 1.2m tall, producing large and very sweet pods over a long period of time. We found this variety to have good resistance to powdery mildew, and exquisite flavour either raw or cooked. We love grazing on mangetouts in the garden, so much so that they rarely make it to the cooking pot!

Peas – Golden Sweet (Organic)£2.35 – £5.20 Choose pack size
Peas – Golden Sweet (Organic)
Vigorous multicoloured plants with green leaves, red-magenta leaf nodes, cream-pink-purple-blue flowers and golden-yellow pods. Golden Sweet makes an unusual attraction in the pea patch. We love the extraordinary colour changes of the flower from cream to purple and blue when they mature. When the pods are still young they’re very sweet and crunchy, as the pods get bigger they’ll become more stringy which makes them better for cooking rather than eating raw.
It was a real pleasure growing Golden Sweet in our pea trial 2018 and observing all the different colours. We found that the whole plant has a golden glow to it once it starts flowering. It was probably one of the tastiest mangetouts that we had when picked young.£2.35 – £5.20
