OP This pea was given to us by friends growing in the Canterbury region. All they said to us, is this is a good pea. And it sure is! A very prolific and hardy plant, producing large shell out peas. The peas can be eaten fresh or dried. The pea themselves are a greenish blue hue, so unclear how the name was derived. Needs a trellis as it grows to 1.5m height.
Sow in early Spring and Autumn for two crops per season. Sow into trays and transplant into garden at 5cm spacing in rows 30cm apart or direct sow at the same spacing. Small trellis ideal but not necessary.
