Pea 'Terrain'

Pisum sativum

The most exciting development in shelling peas since the launch of current best seller Hurst Green Shaft. We've been truly amazed at the outstanding performance of this powerhouse pea. Yield, pod quality and taste - Pea Terrain couldn't be beaten in our 2015 trials, but most impressive was the resistance to both downy and powdery mildew. In a field surrounded by a dozen infected varieties, only Terrain stood clean and green, making it the best pea for late harvesting.

Our final sowing on 31 July lead to a harvest starting 21 October through to the first heavy frosts in late November. Sow from March to August for a regular supply of slightly curved, pointed pods, each holding 7-8 peas. What's more, Pea Terrain produces two pods per node, bring double the harvest compared with older varieties. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread 30cm (12").
