Pisum sativum

HEIRLOOM Good for southern regions and late spring seedings. This productive shelling pea is both cold and heat tolerant. Excellent for canning or freezing. Plants can vine out a bit so have a trellis handy.


Also called garden, shelling or English peas; these are left on the plant until the pod fills out completely. Then they are removed from the fibrous, inedible pod and lightly cooked.

Snow/snap peas (edible pod) and shelling peas are frost-tolerant, cool weather crops that are planted early spring and late summer in full sun. Most garden peas are more productive and all are easier to harvest if given a fence or trellis to climb. Harvest snow/snap peas when pods are still tender and peas are immature. Harvest shelling peas when pods are fully fleshed out. When in doubt, taste pods in different stages of maturity to determine best flavor. Plant Seeds: 1/2" deep with 2" between seeds. Soil Temp: 50-75 F. Days to Sprout: 6-14. Thin To/Mature Plant Spacing: Don't thin. Companions: celery, chicory, radish, turnip, bean, carrot, corn. Seeds/Oz: 110. Seed Wt./100' Row: 6 oz.

    Most reliable shelling pea for western NC. For years, I’ve tried other varieties alongside it, and Wando consistently out-performs them all. Soak overnight in warmish water and plant as early as you can–late February, if the weather cooperates. We trellis Wando then, in June when the plants are spent, use the same trellis to grow beans for drying.
