As a child, peas and beans were the first seeds I sowed. They are large enough for fingers learning to be dexterous and they are not persnickety when it comes to being sown too shallow or too deep. Many thanks to all the people in our world sowing seeds with children!
At Fruition, we share snap and snow as well as shelling varieties. You’ll find massive and abundant full-size plants as well as prolific compact plants that don’t require trellising and can grow in containers. We often direct sow both full-size and dwarf varieties on the same day once the snows melt so we can enjoy twice the harvest window. Here in Zone 5 at Fruition Seeds, we sow compact pea varieties in early August for an abundant fall harvest!
