If you’re growing in containers, you will love compact peas! Requiring so little trellising compared to full-size peas, we’re often eating them three weeks before our full-size peas are beginning to swell. At Fruition, we sow and share compact varieties of classic snap, snow and shelling styles of compact pea. We sow peas directly in the soil once snows melt to enjoy in early summer; compact peas are perfect to sow in early August for a fall crop! Also, because they fix their own nitrogen, peas thrive in the limited nutrients of container gardens more than most.
