High Yielding Bush Pea

A new high-yielding bush pea. The large peas grow in slender 4 1/2 to 5 inch pods in pairs with 8 to 10 peas per pod on 24 to 36 inch vines. A truly superior variety with resistance to many pea diseases. An excellent shelling pea for eating fresh, cooked or frozen. Approximately 61 days till maturity.

Special Directions For Short Season Climates

SOWING: Sow directly into the garden in early spring as soon as the soil is workable. Sow seeds 2 inches apart and cover with 1 to 1 1/2 inches of fine soil firmed down. Sow successive plantings at 3 week intervals until mid spring. Sow mid July to early August for fall harvest.

SPACING: Leave 2 to 2 1/2 feet between rows. Can be grown in wide rows sowing seeds 2 inches apart in all directions.

GERMINATION: Completely dependent upon outdoor temperatures and soil warmth, usually one to two weeks.

Ed's Special Advice

When possible plant rows in a north-south direction for best sun exposure and good air circulation. Lincoln is suitable to late planting for a fall crop. A must variety for every home garden.
