Special germination instructions: Soak seed in water for 12 - 24 hours before sowing.

Harvesting: Shelling peas should be harvested when the pods are plump, about 3 weeks after flowering. Peas that are too mature are tough, and will cause the plant to stop producing; therefore, harvest regularly when pods are at their peak. Use scissors to harvest or hold vine with one hand and pick pod with the other to avoid breaking the brittle vines.
