A very early variety intended for immediate consumption as well as for industrial processing. The first flowers appear at the 9th - 10th node. The number of seeds in a pod is 7 to 8. The pods are green with large to very large seeds. The recommended Seed rate is 90 to 100 plants per 1 m2. The recommended sowing rate is 180 to 200 kg per ha. The time from sowing to harvest is approx. 59 days.
1,0 g = 25 seeds.
Eng.: Wrinkled pea. Suom.: Ydinherne. Sven.: Märgärtor.
Requirements: peas can grow in any climatic conditions and in any soil, provided that it is loose and sufficiently supplied with humus. Locations that are too sheltered from the wind should be avoided.
Sowing: the first of the year (already in mid-April) you can sow shell peas - they are able to withstand light frosts even when they are in bloom.
In April, cereal and sugar pea seeds are sown. In principle, you can sow later - in mid-June, but this is not recommended, because then in the event of a hot summer the harvest will be scarce.
The distance between the rows of peas is 40 cm (if the rows are double, then 10 cm). The spacing between plants in a row is 5 cm.
After planting the seeds to a depth of 5 cm, cover them with earth and drink.
Fertilization: the nutrient requirement of peas is low, so a well-aged compost is usually sufficient. It is necessary to completely abandon nitrogen-containing fertilizers, since the plants themselves produce nitrogen. In view of this, the roots of plants after harvesting must be left in the ground.
Leaving: shortly after sprouting, the rows of peas should huddle. Peas usually need support in order to facilitate harvesting.
Bush peas can do without support, but can also grow on wire mesh.
The soil must always be properly moistened, as its drying out leads to a decrease in yield.
Harvesting: Shelling peas are the first to ripen. It must be cut off as quickly as possible before it loses its green color.
Brain peas must be picked young, as they are not suitable for drying. It begins to be harvested in mid-June, like sugar peas, which, however, can remain on the plant for a long time without compromising quality.
- birds peck peas with pleasure (therefore crops need to be covered).
- aphids are easily removed from the leaves with water.
- Powdery mildew appears mainly as a result of crowding of plants (remove the affected plants immediately).
