Probably the oldest of the traceable pea varieties, Prussian Blue is a prolific producer that is tough enough to bear for just about any gardener.
First catalogued in the 1700’s, it’s name comes from it’s geography, in Prussia, rather than the tenuous connection to the vague green blue tint of the dried pea.
It is delicious as fresh pea but it’s real strength is that once dried, it will store well for re-hydration later.
Ideal for Pea soups or simply pea salad, it is a reliable favourite.
Can be grown in the earth or in large pots.
It will need some support to climb on.
Best sown in the cooler months and not exposed to our summer heat.
