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 '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”).
