EXCLUSIVE - Sabre’s heavy-bearing vines that fill up early with scrumptious, sweet and nutty-tasting garden peas. Expect big yields from these easy-to-work, 2 1/2 to 3 foot tall vines that bear double sets of well-filled pods each with 10 to 12 tender peas that shell out easily. You’ll have a hard time getting these peas into the kitchen because they’re so good eaten fresh off the vine! Sabre is resistant to fusarium wilt, races 1 to 6, powdery mildew and root rot.

START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In early to mid-spring, plant peas in full sun in well-worked, fertile soil. Sow seeds 1 inch deep and 2 to 3 inches apart in wide rows or bands 3 inches across, and 2 feet apart. Provide supports at planting time; vines grow 2 1/2 to 3 feet tall. Protect seedlings from marauding birds with netting or floating row covers if necessary. Wet, cold early spring weather may affect germination, so if first sowing doesn’t come up evenly, replant right away; new seedlings will catch up quickly. Sow again for a fall crop about 2 1/2 months before first expected fall frost.

HARVEST AND USE

Harvest only when peas are well developed in their pods. Crack open the pods by pushing on the edge of the pod to open, then scoop out the delectable peas. When garden fresh, peas really are at their most delicious simply eaten raw right from their pods–kids especially love them! Or briefly steam the shelled peas just until tender, then serve with a dollop of butter or sour cream and a sprinkle of chopped fresh mint, dill or lemon thyme.


GROWING NOTES

Provide netting, trellis or short stakes at planting time to support these heavy bearing vines for easy picking. Turn a sprinkling of bone meal and wood ash into the soil before planting. Keep pea vines well weeded and watered and mulch to conserve moisture. Water at the base of the plants to avoid mildew.
