Blue Shelling Pea Growth Habits:

Direct sow these seeds in spring as soon as the soil can be worked, 1/2” to 1” deep. When grown to maturity, pea vines from heirloom Blue Shelling pea seeds get quite tall, so trellising or other support is recommended. The peas are ready to harvest about 3 weeks after the flowers appear - the pods should be swollen and nearly cylindrical in shape. Alternatively, the pods can be picked earlier for snow peas.


Various Culinary Uses for Blue Shelling Peas:

Shelled peas, which can be boiled, steamed, or sautéed in butter, are a great side dish for any meal. Fresh peas grown from open-pollinated Blue Shelling seeds can be puréed with a potato for a stunning pea soup. They are also great additions to stews of any kind. Peas from the summer harvest can be stored over the winter by freezing or canning.


Health Benefits of Blue Shelling Peas:

Peas grown from organic Blue Shelling seeds have magnesium, potassium and other minerals. These are good for the heart. Also, studies have shown that people lacking these minerals can suffer from high blood pressure. Eating peas likely also helps improve digestion because of the large amount of fiber in them. Many people don't have enough fiber in their diet, and this can negatively impact their digestive system. In addition to all these benefits, peas also are a great source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, thiamin, and manganese.
