Pea Carouby De Maussane

Price £ 2.25

Short description

Crosby de Maussane is a tall-growing, mangetout variety with attractive purple flowers, which produces large pods of up to 11cm long. The peas themselves contain a good sweet flavour and the plant will grow to a rather tall height of 150cm. Many young people today have never seen a pea-pod and only recognise peas if they come out of a plastic bag! We think this is a sad state of affairs because when grown fresh, peas are a totally different vegetable to those that are frozen. To get the sweetest flavour, peas are best cooked when picked young and cooked within 30 minutes of harvest, before the sugar has turned to starch.

WHEN TO SOW
March to May

Where to Sow
Prepare a flat bottom drill 5cm (2in) deep and 10cm, (4in) wide.

What to do next
Space seeds 5cm (2in) apart throughout the drill allowing 60cm (24in) between the drills, then cover over with soil and gently tamp down with the back of a rake. It is advisable to give some net protection against birds, once seedlings start to grow, then add some net support for plants to climb and hold the crop. Alternatively, very early spring sowings can be made in February or March into a length of plastic gutter or modular cells under glass and then planted out against wires. Slide contents of the gutter into a shallow drill made in the plot or space modular plants 10-15cm(4-6in) apart once hardened off.

MATURITY
July to August

HANDY TIP
as plants grow and the crop matures, stems can get quite heavy especially after rain and may require extra tying into the main support netting.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE
A good source of Pro-Vitamin A and Vitamins C, B1 and folic acid.
