Mr.Big offers four major improvements over standard garden peas:

  • The giant pods (4-4.5" /10-12cm) are easier to shell and there are more peas (9-10) in each pod
  • Their Berry flavor is absolutely wonderful and sweet
  • East-to-grow plants produce extra high yields
  • Strong disease resistance lengthens the plants life

Plants grow best in cool weather. Delicious fresh from the garden and cooked; they also freeze well.

  • Seed Depth: 1" (2.5cm)
  • Seed Spacing:1-2" (2.5-5cm)
  • Row Spacing: 24-30" (60-75cm)
  • Days to Sprout: 7-14
  • Plant Spacing: Do not thin, Keep plants 1-2" apart.
  • Days to Maturity: 72

Plant: Plants grow best if seeds are treated with inoculant before sowing. Plant only into well drained soil. Direct seed as soon as soil can be worked in the spring. Replant at 2 week intervals until mid-spring.

Care: Water regularly and fertilize when 4" (10cm) tall. Provide a support about 30" (75cm) tall. May be grown on the ground, where it reaches about 2-3' (61-91cm) tall.

Harvest: Pick while pods are still bright green and shiny, but after seeds have enlarged. Hold vine while picking to avoid damaging it.

Your Health: A good source of fiber, minerals, vitamins A and C and some B vitamins.
