Peas – Heraut (Organic)

£2.60£4.20

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.

When to sow: March – May

Spacing: 3 x 30cm

Peas tips: A good tilth and firm seedbed is necessary. Direct sow once soil has started to warm up from late March. Sow in drills 3cm deep and 30cm apart. Tall pea varieties will need support, e.g. wires or pea sticks. Early sowings can be made indoors in pots and planted out to their final spacing.
