Peas and beans are easy to grow and great for children too. Sowing in succession (every few weeks) means you'll have a continuous crop throughout the summer. Try growing sweet peas next to your runner beans to improve pollination.
Pea 'Sugar Flash' (Sugarsnap)
Pisum sativumCustomer Rating
Early to pod, only 9 weeks from sowing, and producing abundant crops of stringless, juicy, sweet Sugarsnap pea pods, each around 7cm (3”) in length. Pea 'Sugar Flash' has good heat tolerance during hot summer conditions and powdery mildew resistance that ensures excellent yields. This versatile variety can be picked as a Mangetout just as the 'peas' begin to swell, but are best left until swollen in the pods for maximum sweetness when eaten whole as Sugar snap peas. Height: 70cm (28”). Spread: 25cm (10”).
Pea 'Kenobi' (Maincrop)
Extend the sowing season with this major development in pea breeding! In our UK trials, Pea 'Kenobi' was sown in late July and pods were starting to swell by mid October. This semi-leafless variety is virtually self supporting when grown in a block, and will produce 3-4 pods per node, giving a good average yield of 8 peas to the pod. Good downy and powdery mildew resistance also helps to maximise cropping and prolong the season. Height: 60cm (24”). Spread: 25cm (10”).
